Stand up and Supper: Paul Kerensa, comedy writer and stand-up comedian

This evening’s entertainment features Paul Kerensa, who is doing a stand-up set for us in a cabaret style, as we have dinner in the wonderful setting of the Union Club in Soho. The Union is a private members’ club, situated in a listed Georgian town house in the heart of Soho which aims for a relaxed and warm atmosphere with a quirky, bohemian feel. We shall ensure there will be an opportunity for feedback and interaction after his set on what promises to be a wonderful evening of Sion College fellowship.

Seminar Supper: ‘What is life to me without thee?’: Britain after Brexit

Speaker: Sir Stephen Wall, former British Permanent Representative to the European Union

BREXIT – it is widely agreed – is the most important and most difficult issue which has faced the United Kingdom since 1945; and it is dominating the work of Government and Parliament.

Failing agreement, there is the prospect of a cliff edge hard Brexit on 29th March next year. It is timely for Sion College to hold a second seminar supper on this great issue with a speaker who is a true expert with unrivalled experience of the UK’s relationship with the EU.

Evening tour, talk and reception: The Dickens Museum, Bloomsbury

The Victorian family home of Charles Dickens in London is where the author wrote Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers and Nicholas Nickleby. Dickens and his wife Catherine moved here  a few months before Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837. It is where he first achieved international fame as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

At the time of our visit there will be a special exhibition entitled “Food, Glorious Food”, which attendees will see during their tour. Following the guided tour Pen Vogler, the exhibition curator, who writes about food in nineteenth century literature, will give a talk on themes around food in the life and works of Dickens: how you would eat as a guest or member of the family, and how you would eat (and prepare food) as a servant.  Pen’s book Christmas with Dickens: Seasonal Recipes inspired by the Life and Works of Charles Dickens, is available to attendees at a reduced price.

Online application and payment is available for this event. To apply and pay online you will first need to register if you haven't done so already. Once the Administrator has approved your registration, you will be able to log in and access the online application/payment.
