The Guild is delighted to welcome five major agri-businesses as sponsors of this year’s Harvest Service and Lunch.

Tickets to attend the prestigious flagship event – held on 12 October at St Bride’s Church and Painters’ Hall – are on sale now.

Guild members have been offered first refusal, but tickets are being opened-up to the wider agricultural industry, so don’t miss your chance to secure your place and invite guests.

For the third year running, food supply chain group ABP is this year’s lead sponsor– financially and also in-kind. The meat served at the lunch will be supplied by ABP.

ABP is joined as sponsors, for the first time, by speciality fertiliser business ICL which is supporting the renowned St Bride’s choir during the church service.

ICL is also sponsoring the drinks reception preceding the luncheon.

Agricultural insurer NFU Mutual continues to offer its support by sponsoring the lunch venue; and agrochemical distribution firm Hutchinsons is generously sponsoring the wine.

Animal Nutrition business Alltech has taken sponsorship of the church.

The display in the church will once again be provided by Bill and Andre Kelsey. Nuffield Scholars will be involved in the provision of produce to the luncheon.

“The 2017 Harvest Lunch is set to be a harvest celebration, a networking opportunity and a chance to indulge in some of the finest British produce,” says Guild chairman Ben Briggs.

Thanks to the very generous support from our 2017 sponsors, the Guild has been able to set extremely attractive ticket prices for this year’s event.

Tickets cost £52 for BGAJ Members and Friends, and £72 for non-members. To secure your place, contact Guild Secretary Nikki Robertson at
