Harvest Service and Lunch

One of the most popular events in the the Guild's calendar is returning to London on 7 October 2021.

The online Harvest Festival was a huge success last year with 120 people logging on to listen to hymns, readings and prayers while sampling some wonderful British cheese.

But a member survey revealed overwhelming support for a return to the capital for a face-to-face celebration.

The Harvest Service and Lunch event will begin at 11 am at St Bride’s Church, where a moving service of thanksgiving will take place, featuring hymns from the much-loved choir.

This will be followed by a fantastic three-course lunch at Pewterers' Hall - a new venue for 2021 - where guests can catch up with friends, meet new ones and network with members from across the UK.

The Guild is extremely grateful to lead sponsor NFU Mutual for its continued support of this event.

Tickets for the lunch are on sale today, priced at £65 for members and £85 for guests.

There is no charge for attending the church service, and you don't need to book a ticket.

As the flagship event for the Guild, tickets are expected to sell out quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Book your tickets via Eventbrite.
