All welcome including partners

This will be an evening at which these two organisations sharing 12th century roots will come together in this lovely Livery Hall as a number of Jurats of the Jurade de Saint-Emilion begin their visit to England.   The evening will begin at 7.00 p.m. with a Champagne reception at which the Jurade will hold a ceremonial Chapter and install one or more candidates from Circuit (whose identity is still under wraps) as Vignerons díHonneur et Bourgeois de Saint-…milion.

The Circuit will then (at 7.30 p.m.) hold a Mess, unusual in two ways: firstly because members of Circuit are invited to bring their other halves and, secondly, because the Jurade is sending substantial quantities of the wines of the Jurisdiction of Saint-…milion for the event.

Places, at £70 per person, will be on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to attend, please contact Suzy Trott, Circuit Administrator indicating how many places you would like to book and any special dietary requirements.

Dress: Lounge suits
