The Seventh Annual US Alumni Summer Reception

  • 13 Jul 2012
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Savile Club, 69 Brook Street, London W1

The Cornell Club invites Yale Club members to this popular summer counterpart to the big winter all-Ivy reception.

The reception will be held in the elegant Ballroom of the Savile Club, with its grand imperial staircases. The room floods with daylight from tall windows at both ends and as night falls, the venerable chandeliers glitter in the profusion of mirrors. 

The Savile Club set itself apart from the stuffy atmosphere of Victorian clubs from its founding in 1868 and remains largely "artistic" with many authors, scriptwriters, musicians, journalists, actors, television producers and scientists forming the backbone of the membership. Former members included Sir Charles Darwin, Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells, Henry James, C.P. Snow, Sir Edward Elgar, and Sir William Walton. 

Cost: £32 per person to include hors d'oeuvres and wine through the evening.
Dress code: Smart; men must wear jackets and ties.
