It was debated whether or not to make GPN free and attract some but detract others or more exclusive that may bring the same conclusion.
However over the last few years, we found that making it cheaper and going to more affordable places did not bring any more members, in fact quite the contrary.
We are a group of Gay Professionals who actually like their comfort, good wine and food, comfortable surrounding and great people.
So we are going more exclusive and start 2018 in style at the Savile Club.
The Savile Club was established in 1868 by a group of the most distinguished writers and artists of the time. Its home is a fine 18th Century house in the heart of Mayfair, whose air of elegant exclusivity reflects the uniquely creative ambiance which is preserved in the Savile Club of today.
Dress code (for Members and Guests)It reflects of course on the price since we pay for room hire and more expensive wines and include canapés.
The choice (this may change pending new menus in 2018) is
White Burgundy: Macon-Uchizy and Bordeaux: Chateau Beauregard-Ducourt.
- Beef and Mustard/Horseradish Profiteroles
- Vichyssoise Demi-Tasse
- Tiger Prawns in Filo Pastry
- Warm Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon Vol au Vents
- Mixed Vegetable Quiches
- Goujons of Sole and Chips with Tartar Sauce.
The price will be £49.50 and includes a small fee towards the running of GPN.
GPN is a non for profit membership organisation operating since 2010. The excess from the membership fees after food, drinks and room hire pays for the website, promotion, organising, stationary including the badges, transport & banners, guests and guest speakers.
Members who have already paid for the year, there is no further charges except that we now will meet bimonthly and up to five times a year.
By hiring private rooms, we can talk and make the occasional presentation without the noise associated with cheaper venues.
As we did over the last few years, drinks will all be included, (up to a point though!).
