President’s Luncheon 2019

12 September 2019

The Academy’s prestigious annual President’s Luncheon will be held on Monday 16 December 2019 at the magnificent Drapers’ Hall in the City of London.

This year’s event will be particularly special as it marks the end of Professor Sir Ivor Crewe’s term as President of the Academy.  Ivor has been an outstanding President and we all wish him well for the future. He will be succeeded by Professor Roger Goodman, who takes on the combined role of President and Chair on 1 January 2020, as approved at an Extraordinary General Meeting last year.

The lunch provides an opportunity for our Fellows to meet colleagues and peers in a convivial setting. Our Fellows are very welcome to bring guests and Member Learned Societies may wish to host a table.  New Fellows are invited to receive their certificates from the President. Details of this year’s guest speaker will be announced shortly.

Founded over 600 years ago, the Drapers’ Company is one of the 12 great livery companies in the City of London. It has evolved into an organisation that addresses contemporary issues, gaining a new relevance through its philanthropic role. Situated in the heart of the City of London, the beautiful function rooms of Drapers’ Hall will provide a splendid setting for our lunch, one of the most prestigious events in our calendar.

Tickets for this year’s event cost £95 per head and include a drinks reception, three-course lunch with wine, and tea and coffee. We are very grateful to the Drapers’ Company and to Taylor & Francis for their generous support.
