A Grand Reopening

Champagne Evening

with food


The Copthorne Tara Hotel

Scarsdale Place, Kensington, London


Friday 30th July 2021



Attendance at this reopening event will be high. With everyone's comfort and Covid sensitivity in mind, the event has been arranged in the Copthorne Tara Hotel's largest event space, the "Shannon Suite" .


Enter the Hotel through the main entry doors.

Once inside, go straight past the Reception on the right. Head down the corridor, the Shannon is straight ahead, well-signed and on the ground floor with step-free access.

Doors to the Shannon Suite will not open until 7pm - please take care with your arrival time as there is nowhere particularly convenient to wait.

The "Shannon Suite" 


The evening, while informal, will be a fully seated arrangement, using tables mostly of 7 people (family groups of up to 8 can be accomodated, but keeping table sizes low is preferred). A Table plan will of course be produced and all attendees will receive their Table Number by email, well before the event, so on arrival you will be presented with an initial glass of Brut NV Champagne and can proceed straight to your table.

A selection of hot and cold bowl food will be individually served to everyone during the evening, so please indicate any dietary necessities on the Booking Form (see below).

The Portobello Jazz Band will be with us again (Members will remember them and their dulcet tones from the Annual Summer Party that usually followed the AGM). Again, space restrictions and Covid precautions means no dance floor on this occasion.
