What you'll do

Come to hear fantastic opera singers and instrumentalists from the best composers sung by international talent in the National Liberal Club—one of London's oldest private member clubs which was among the first to allow women as members. There are views of the London Eye and it's right next to the River Thames. You will experience wonderful music performed by the best talent in the elegant environment of this traditional old-world club. You will have the opportunity for a meet and greet with the artists in the exquisite yet intimate surroundings. We have an extra-long interval so that you can enjoy a drink with us and some conversation with the artists and other guests. For the concert, you are welcome to come to the concert dressed as you feel comfortable, but if you dress up (jacket and tie for men and no jeans or sneakers) you will be welcome to explore the rest of the club and sit by the fire or just hang out in the bar. For those who want to dress up and see the club, I will meet you at 7pm, before the concert at 730pm, to give the group a personal tour. Remember the dress code if you're interested. I would not want anyone to be disappointed.

Where you'll be

The National Liberal Club is a London gentlemen's club but is actually open to both men and women. Established by W. E. Gladstone in 1882, it was designed by Alfred Waterhouse and was completed in 1887. The club's neo-Gothic building on the Embankment of the Thames is the second-largest clubhouse ever built. It is located at Whitehall Place, close to the Houses of Parliament, the Thames Embankment and Trafalgar Square.
