Christmas Lunch Header

The Christmas Lunch ’07 went with a swing with our President, Brian Blessed setting a really warm atmosphere, his exuberance is certainly catching. The Great Room was full to capacity there were one thousand and twenty TRIC members with their guests. We aim to make the TRIC Christmas Lunch a traditional occasion with Carols, turkey, mince pies, Christmas pudding, balloons, and party hats and decorations, the Christmas Lunch ’07 certainly was so Christmassy, the atmosphere was wonderful.

We had several past Presidents with us to enjoy the occasion. Roy Hudd and his wife Debbie, June Whitfield with her son in law Terry, Tom O’Connor and his wife Pat and Ainsley Harriot straight from Ready Steady Cook. John O’Neill hosted a table of his own guests.
We were pleased to entertain Sian Williams and her partner. Sian has agreed to be our next President for 2008/09 so we were delighted to see her having a lovely time enjoying the company of so many of our past Presidents and their guests. We were also very pleased to welcome David Frost he joined us for an aperitif and as a distinguished Companion of TRIC for many years it was a pleasure to see him.

After lunch we were entertained by Dara O’Briain the well known Irish comedian of many Television programmes and a regular guest on Q I. Then we were all in good voice as we sang our carols with the Salvation Army Band who have become very much part of our festivities. For many people the TRIC Christmas Lunch is the beginning of the Christmas season’s celebrations.
