Club of Britain 11th Annual All Ivy Plus Summer Reception (London, UK)
July 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£36
Please join the Mount Holyoke Club of Britain for our annual reception, held at the Savile Club.
The reception will be held in the elegant Ballroom with its imperial staircase unusually conceived as a single majestic sweep of space, uniting the ground and first floors. It was adorned with a lighthearted manifestation of the Louis XVI style, which had become so popular in the 1880’s. The room floods with daylight from tall windows at both ends and at night the venerable chandeliers glitter in the profusion of mirrors. Such was the impact of this extravagant room on the Savilians of the 1920’s that it was immediately painted brown in an attempt to render it more masculine. It was gloriously restored in blue and white gold by eminent architect member, Dennis Lennon.
Dress code: Smart; men must wear jackets and ties
Cost: £36 per person includes hors d’oeuvres and wine through the evening
