The Chicken and Chablis Club was established in 1968 by a group of Australian ladies based in London. The function of the club is to promote friendship between Australian expatriates and those who have strong Australian connections by organising regular lunches at a variety of venues.
Lunches are held on the second Thursday of the month excluding the months of January, August and December. Members are encouraged to recommend a restaurant they have enjoyed which ensures a wide range of restaurants to be discovered. The cost of the lunch includes two courses, usually two glasses of wine, tap water, tea or coffee and all taxes and service charges.
We send out invitations to our members by email at least 3 weeks before the luncheon. Members are asked to reply promptly if they are able to attend so that final numbers can be given to the restaurant in good time.
Whilst all of the above is the information that you need, it reads as ‘Dry as a Drover’s Dog’!! What really happens at these lunches? The decibels rise as friends are greeted and stories are shared. There’s no particular agenda but outcomes of these lunches have been reunions, cultural exchanges, charitable activities, new outings planned and just plain fun. Not to forget the discovery of a fabulous restaurant. The lunches are always ‘Worth a Go’ and you can usually invite a chum.
