Chairman’s Corner Dec 2015

Dear Britsoc Members,

It was terrible to see the events in Paris recently and on behalf of the British Society our thoughts are with all our French friends.

So winter has finally arrived, and with it comes another one of our biggest events: the Iconic Charity Ball (Sold Out. Waiting List here). This year’s event promises once again to be the social event of the year, and our organisers are busy putting the finishing touches to it.

Two pieces of big news:

  • The society is now free to join, yes you read it correctly completely free to join. To sign up you can register here:
FREE Membership Here
  • We now have a Meetup page for organising our smaller events:

We have already had a comedy evening, pub quiz, business networking event, and we have started a monthly Curry Club.

Tickets for Burn’s Night on 30th Jan 2016 continue to sell well. At the time of writing there are only 20 tickets left. If you want to go, click below.

We have also been given an exceptional good offer on the Badhius theatre play Sean O Casey’s, The Plough and the Stars.  Members have 25% off the ticket price throughout the 17-20th December run.

Finally, I will be organising a get together for new volunteers and organisers in January.  If you would be interested to lead, or help run one of our big events, or help set up some new events, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Best Wishes for holiday season and hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas.
