Dinner at The Reform Club, 102 Pall Mall, London

Dinner at the Reform was as delightful as we anticipated with wonderful food and wine in the spectacular gold and red surroundings of the Library. It is a beautiful building with a rich cultural history. Founders and early committee members were well represented at the tables and were thanked. Mrs June Robinson, the newly elected National Chairman of NADFAS on her first official event, was our guest of honour. Jonathan Blanchard-Smith, former Chairman of the Reform Club, gave an amusing and informative speech.

Have You Had It Long Madam?

It was just as well we booked the Barn Theatre, Oxted, to show “Have You Had It Long Madam?” with Paul Atterbury and Hilary Kay, otherwise we would not have been able to cope with the numbers of members and guests. The two performers talked about what it was like to be on the Road Show and how it developed over the years. They described some of the weird, wonderful and  bizarre events they had experienced, illustrated by film clips, stories and delicious gossip. It was enormous fun and very popular with members and non-members alike.

Titsey Place. Guided Tour and Afternoon Tea

Guy Innes kindly offered us exclusive access to Titsey Place for the day as a way of saying thank you to LDFAS volunteer guides. They organised a well constructed programme of tours of the house and gardens for 120 members. Click on an image below to see a slide show of a selection of photos from the 40th Anniversary Events
