Harvest Lunch

The Guild’s annual Harvest Service and Lunch is the most popular event in our calendar.

Experience the unique Harvest Service at St Bride’s, the journalists’ church

Enjoy a fantastic three-course meal showcasing the best of British food

Hear from our inspiring guest speaker.

Celebrate this year’s winners during the presentation of the awards.

The Harvest Service and Lunch returns to St Bride’s Church on Thursday 10 October 2024 where a service of thanksgiving will take place, featuring hymns from the St Bride’s choir.

This will be followed by a three-course lunch at Stationers’ Hall where members and guests will be able to catch up with friends and colleagues from across the UK.

Our annual harvest celebration is the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends, colleagues and network with other agricultural communicators.

If you’ve never attended a Harvest Lunch before, Guild council members will be on hand outside the church and at Stationers’ Hall to buddy up and make you feel welcome. For more information, or if you need any special help, email
