2019 SRIP Conference Dinner

Thursday 5th September

Following welcome drinks, a 3-course meal with wine will be served in the Waterhouse Suite. The conference dinner provides a friendly and relaxed environment to network and socialise with colleagues.

Holborn Bars is an inspiring central London venue with a trading and business history dating back to the early 1870s. The building was commissioned by the Prudential Insurance Company and produced by architect Alfred Waterhouse, who also designed the Natural History Museum. Holborn Bars is a striking Grade II listed red brick building featuring fine architectural detailing in Gothic Revival style, with art-deco elements added in the 1930s. Following recent refurbishment, the interior of Holborn bars is a wonderful mix of contemporary and traditional styles with dramatic staircases, ornate ceilings, wood panelling, and grand fireplaces. 

The nearest tube station is Chancery Lane on the Central Line. When leaving the station take exit number two and the entrance to Holborn Bars is located approximately 50 meters ahead.
