Our 88th Annual dinner, now renamed as the Jock Burnet Annual Founder’s Dinner will be held on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 at the Royal Automobile Club 89 Pall Mall, dress is black tie.
Our speaker will be The Right Reverend David Urquhart. David, a Jester since 1977, was appointed the Bishop of Birmingham in 2006. Brought up in the Highlands of Scotland he attended Rugby School where he was Head of School, an accomplished Rugby Fives player and Captain of the XV. Following a spell in Idi Amin’s Uganda, David returned to London and a ten-year career in the commercial side of BP, before being ordained as a priest. A Lords Spiritual to the House of Lords, he is also the Archbishop of Canterbury’s envoy to China. For recreation David walks the Scottish hills, reads history and rides a motorbike.
The Committee very much hopes that the Annual Dinner will continue to be well supported. It is an extremely pleasant evening, reasonably priced, and gives you a great opportunity to meet fellow Jesters and their guests in a convivial atmosphere.
