Guild Harvest Service and Luncheon

By 2nd February 2019July 27th, 2023No Comments

Held every autumn, the Guild’s prestigious Harvest Service and Lunch is our flagship celebration of British food and farming.

It is the most popular of all Guild events and features a dedicated church service at St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, followed by a networking drinks reception and three-course luncheon at Painter’s Hall, with the event attracting over 160 guests.

As well as a fantastic opportunity to network with members, sponsors and industry representatives, the day also hosts a handful of the Guild’s award presentations.

An informal post-luncheon networking opportunity at the local hostelry extends they day and the chance to cement relationships.
