Celebrate St George's Day in style, with The Grocer! In conjunction with our sister publication Convenience Store, we are organising a special St George's Day lunch on Monday April 23, with proceeds going to the Confectioners Benevolent Fund. Brian Blessed, one of Britain's most distinguished actors, will fly the flag for England as a guest speaker. A reception precedes the traditional English lunch and diners will be serenaded by a military band which will play during the meal and close the occasion in rousing style with patriotic songs. The ideal opportunity to network with your industry peers, the lunch will be held at the Glaziers Hall, overlooking the Thames at London Bridge. The lunch is being sponsored by Kraft, Nestlé Rowntree and Rothmans. Tickets are £75 plus VAT or £750 plus VAT for a table for 10. Don't delay ­ for further details about the lunch call William Reed Events on 01293 610434. {{NEWS }}
