Even if you can’t make it yourself, don’t hesitate to pass on the information to someone you know who might be interested in attending an event that is always a highlight of the London social scene!

Follow this link for details about how to books tickets:

Guest speaker is old boy Joel Mawhinney, who was a great success at the Bangor Dinner in November 2016. Although Joel has only recently left BGS, for the past 13 years he has combined his practical knowledge of human psychology, influence and deception to begin a unique career as one of the UK’s only “Mentalists”. A guest speaker with a difference!
