London Mark Provincial Grand Officers Mess Friday 19th May 2017

You are cordially invited, with your partner and/or guests, to attend a fun champagne and canapés reception in the magnificent Long Room at the HQ of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) in Armoury House, Moorgate.

The evening will conclude (weather permitting) with a bespoke Beating of the Retreat by the HAC band on the lawn, at which the DGM, Ray Smith, will take the salute. Since the announcement in March that he will become Pro Grand Master in June, this is a tremendous opportunity for us to show our support for him.

The date is Friday 19 May 2017. The reception timings are 6 to 8, but the HAC Museum will be open exclusively for us from 5.30 for those who wish to arrive early and visit it. Dress will be lounge suit.

The cost is just £40 for this memorable and spectacular event. We have a capped capacity and tickets will be allocated on a first come basis.

At the event we will be launching the new Mess tie, and there will be opportunities to have a go at sabraging bottles of champagne (see the photo of the PGM successfully doing so).

The Committee and I look forward very much to welcoming you and your guests. Booking form is on the top left side of this page under ALSO SEE

Yours sincerely and fraternally,

Tim MacAndrews
