On Friday 16th June 2017, the Trustees of FFLAG will be hosting a dinner in the Peers’ Dining Room of the House of Lords to celebrate the passing of the equalities legislation we were set up to fight for and to share with you how we now plan to build on this platform to improve attitudes in society towards our LGBT loved ones.
We will start at 6.15p.m. with a private tour of the Palace of Westminster. It is not expected that either House will be sitting at that time but both Chambers will be specially opened so that we can go in. The tour will also visit Westminster Hall, the oldest part of the palace dating back to the 1080s, and the Central, Peers’ and Members’ lobbies.
After the tour, we will hold a drinks reception in the Peers’ Guest Room before taking our seats in the Peer’s Dining Room. After dinner, there will be speeches from our host, Rt Hon Prof the Lord Norton of Louth, our Patron, the Lord Cashman, and our Chair, Sorrel Atkinson, about the latest developments at FFLAG.
We plan to finish around 10:30p.m.
The cost of the event is £125.00 per head. Booking arrangements are as follows: –
a) Drop a note to [email protected] confirming how many tickets you want. To reduce correspondence, please include any special requirements regarding diet, mobility or anything else next to the full name of each guest and the postal address for the tickets. Please also let us know if you or any in your party are not planning to join the tour, but intend to come direct to the reception at 7:15p.m.
b) You will receive a confirmation that tickets are still available and have been reserved for you, together with details of the bank account into which to make your payment.
c) To keep administration to a minimum your payment will not be acknowledged but you will receive your tickets by post within 14 days of payment.
Dress code is lounge suit or similar (e.g. jacket and tie).
We hope you will be able to join us for what we are sure will be a fantastic evening.
