TRIC Christmas Lunch History

The annual TRIC Christmas Lunch marks the beginning of the Christmas Season with its traditional Christmas fare, festive balloons and party bags and carols led by the Salvation Army.  It is also a time to think of others as the annual raffle and auction, with amazing prizes generously donated by the TRIC Members, are held at this event to raise money to donate to the TRIC nominated charities.
The lunch is held in the usual venue, The Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel Park Lane, London.

The Salvation Army greet guests with carols during the Champagne Reception and later after the lunch guests are encouraged to stand and join in with the singing.
