Upcoming Events


We are incredibly honoured to receive such positive comments about our lunches. It was great to get out of the office for a few hours.

“The Lunch Circle has proven to be an extremely useful way to form not only business relationships, but friendships too. The events are intimate, relaxed and highly rewarding, which is what makes The Lunch Circle so refreshing.”

“You are to be congratulated on organising a truly excellent event. It worked on some many levels; great location, charming host, an intimate gathering, very good food and wine and above all an outstanding speaker.”

“Lunch Circle events feature as priorities in my calendar for one reason; I enjoy them immensely. Convivial company, excellent hospitality and the examination of interesting topics combine to provide a welcome interlude in our demanding business and professional lives.”

“The Lunch Circle was a delight to host – the members were a fascinating spread of chiefs and captains of all major industries, united by a curiosity and enthusiasm for knowledge and networking at the very highest level. We look forward to welcoming them to Bonhams again and continuing to share our specialists’ insight in to the world of collecting.”

“The Lunch Circle is both a very enjoyable way to spend a lunch time, and a great way to socialise with a friendly and interesting group of people. The quality of the food and the locations are great, as is the friendliness and influence of the members. I look forward to the meetings, as I know I am going to enjoy the company, the food, and to hear some fascinating speakers.”

“The lunch circle is simply a gathering of friends and friends of friends, in wonderful surroundings, to listen to some of the world’s leading experts from a diverse range of fields. As with any good party, it is the people that make it and the people I have met through the Lunch Circle have been wonderful. Informal, informative, inspiring and most importantly – fun.”

“Very enjoyable afternoon – good company, delicious food and excellent wines. Thank you so much for introducing me to The Lunch Circle.”

“I feel exceptionally lucky that I was invited!”

“It was so nice to meet the Lunch Circle Members and to hear how much they enjoyed their time in the Green Yard and all the positive comments we received on the day. It was so nice to have such a fun and interesting group of members joins us and we very much look forward to seeing them again next year at the Royal Enclosure.”

“Thank you very much for your excellent organisational skills in the BBR Luncheon with Sir Christopher as guest speaker. This was an amazing event, a “once in a career” event that may never come again. I thoroughly enjoyed the venue, the speaker, the wine and excellent meal as well as the fun after-drinks party.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed myself. You had an excellent choice of guests. I thought going to Berry Bros. was a stroke of genius, with its cellars and long table. I do hope our paths will cross again.”

“I cannot speak highly enough of the Lunch Circle. So often one attends a networking event only to be ambushed by various service providers. The Lunch Circle offers a genuine and refreshing chance for like minded people to socialise and network whilst enjoying fantastic venues, food and captivating speakers.”

“Many thanks for inviting me to a very interesting and enjoyable lunch. Sir Christopher was very interesting and engaging.”

“Many thanks for organising the lunch which was very enjoyable; venue, wine, food and company were all great.”

“The commercial seniority of the members that come to the lunch events is stunning.”

“The team are delightful hosts and work hard to ensure that these ingredients continue to exert their magic, exposing our hungry minds to all sorts of ideas, events and projects whilst providing victuals and libations of the finest order. Long may they continue this highly valued tradition.”

“The Lunch Circle events are the perfect way to maintain and establish valuable business connections.”

“Sabatini Gin and I sponsored already three Lunch Circle events throughout the past two years, all of them held in top London location. The real benefit is networking with top business people and the visibility that such event give to the Brand.”
