Cliveden House is a Grade I stately home, set in 376 acres of National Trust grounds and is a 5 Red Star, award-winning hotel. The period of ownership by the 2nd Viscount and Lady Astor from 1906 was notorious for its intrigue and glamour, debauched parties and scandalous affairs, attracting the starriest names and the elite of the age. This event is a morning presentation by St. James’s Place, followed by lunch with us in the superb Andre Garrett restaurant and then a butler’s tour of Cliveden.
The Williams Conference Centre, Grove, Oxfordshire, is home to the largest private collection of Formula 1 cars in the world.

This is an evening event which includes a St. James’s Place Investment Market Update and a tour. If you would like to include an overnight stay, we can arrange that*.Date

Lions Wine Tasting Challenge 15th June
We were blessed with a beautiful, if rather breezy summer evening for our 2017 Wine Lions Challenge here in the courtyard in South Warnborough. Proceedings kicked off with a delicious English sparkling rosé, then we went head to head in teams to guess which was the New Zealand and which was the British (or other) wine. The All Blacks team (captained by Sarah Buckle) were victorious at the end of a thoroughly entertaining and educational evening.
Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery Tour – 10th May
We had an excellent day at the Distillery beginning with a fascinating and educational tour, taking in a good sniff of all the 10 botanicals that go into the gin, hearing about the mighty “Thomas” and “Mary” distilling tanks and observing the spectacular glass houses with the tropical plants. We then chose from a list of fabulous-sounding cocktails and sipped them outside in the glorious sunshine. We finished off our fabulous day with and amusing and informative cocktail masterclass.
Date for 2018 event coming soon
Team Day at ATR Winchester
The B&P team, together with clients enjoyed a challenging day out at the Army Training Regiment in Winchester.

We now all have stories to dine out on for the next year until we do it again!
