Alumni Dinner


The Alumni Dinner is generally considered to be the highlight of the calendar and is our chance to end another successful year at UCL Tories with a bang. We do hope those of you who joined us last year would all agree that this really is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends, support the society and generally have a good time. We really would be delighted to have you there – and please do spread the word to Members, Friends and Alumni we may have lost touch with. The more the merrier!

 Date: Saturday 20th April 2013

Dress Code: Black Tie

Time: 6.30pm til Late

Place: UCL Campus (South Cloisters & Old Refectory)

We will enjoy a champagne reception in the South Cloisters from 6.30pm and then move into the Old Refectory for a delicious dinner. During dinner we will be treated to some sound words from our guest speaker, Peter Lilley MP. Peter Lilley currently represents the constituency of Hitchin and Harpenden. He was a Cabinet minister in the governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major, serving as Trade and Industry Secretary from July 1990 to April 1992, and as Social Security Secretary from April 1992 to May 1997. In opposition, he served as Shadow Chancellor and Deputy Leader. After dinner we will head to a nearby location for an after-party and to continue celebrations!

The menu is as follows:


Parma Ham with celeriac remoulade and sauté apple
Goats Cheese and Caramelised red onion tart and baby leaves (v)

Braised pork belly, chorizo risotto, smoked garlic and white wine cream sauce
Butternut squash and truffle risotto and dressed ruby chard (v)

Sticky Toffee pudding
Citrus free fruit salad

We would be absolutely delighted if you could join us for this fabulous evening! Tickets are just £49 for UCL Students and £55 for Alumni. There is also the option of a donor ticket at £75 should you wish to contribute to the running of the society in some small way.

See you there.
