London Christmas Drinks : Friday 20 December 2019

Hi. Back again is the December Christmas drinks in London. It will be fairly low key like in previous years and will basically be a venue, date, and time.

As for dates there will be no poll this year and we are going for the evening Friday 20 December. Hopefully this should allow both those local to London to come and those from the regions to come down.

The venue is likely to be the same place as last year, so Union Bar on George Street in Marylebone, central London. It has been kindly booked thanks to teledude and we have use of the downstairs bar. The evening will be from 5pm until close, just turn up when you can.

I realise that many will have various Christmas events so may not be able to come, but hopefully some will be able to and we can have a good night.
cistavoda, squawk, TPRun and 9 others like this.

But, but, but... I was looking forward to barging through the crowd, waving some glittery and bejewelled "FT Super Priority" card

I was hoping it would be a week earlier. I’m off to Malta on 15th December so I won’t be able to make it this time.
