Vincent’s Annual Club Dinner 2016

Dear Vincent’s Member,


I do hope that you can join us at this year’s Vincent’s Club Annual Dinner which will be held in the magnificent Hall of the Inner Temple. I’m delighted to announce that the new Chairman of VATC, Sir John Hood, (Worcester, 1976) will be the dinner Chairman, and Michael Beloff QC, (Magdalen, 1965) will be our guest speaker.

Michael is a former President of Trinity College, Treasurer of Grays Inn and Senior Ordinary Appeal Judge of the Courts of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey . He is Chairman of the IAAF Ethics Board, Chairman of the ICC Code of Conduct Commission, a member of the Court of Arbitration for Sport who has arbitrated at five summer Olympic Games, including Rio, and is on the appeal bodies of other sports including motor racing, ironman and golf.

  • Date: Wednesday 7th December 2016
  • Venue: The Inner Temple, Crown Office Row, London, EC4Y 7HL
  • Time: 7.00 for 7.45 pm
  • Dress code: Black Tie
  • Tickets: £100 for a drinks reception (wine & beer), dinner with wines, coffee and port.

This year there will be a decent amount of wine included in the price of both the reception and dinner. Thus the cost of tickets is lower than in previous years and the annoying delay in obtaining drinks at the bar will be eliminated. However, there will also be a cash bar available for extra pre and post-dinner drinks, wine and beers. 

Should you wish to help one or two resident members who play your sport to join the dinner please contact

Some sponsorship opportunities for the dinner are also still available. Again please contact: Your support would be much appreciated.
