Please see below the list of events for the Summer Social Programme 2022.
As you may know, we are able to get some good prices on tickets, which we further subsidise from the Association’s budget, so the Social Programme is a great way of experiencing some of the fabulous events London offers, without breaking the bank!
If you would like tickets, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, listing the event(s) you wish to book, your name, your full address and the number of tickets you require. Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis, and they do tend to sell out quite quickly.
Once you have emailed me your request, I will send a confirmation email, and the details for payment via bank transfer. The tickets will be distributed to participants a day or so before each event.
