Annual Banquet 2021

In what has been a very challenging year, we are delighted to announce that the AFB’s prestigious Annual Banquet will return after its noted absence in 2020.  At the AFB, we are looking forward more than ever to spending a relaxing and enjoyable evening with our valued Members, Partners and your guests in the exquisite surroundings of Drapers’ Hall.

We are delighted to announce that Eversheds Sutherland and nCino will be sponsoring this year’s Banquet

The Banquet will commence with a networking reception from 18:30 and is followed by dinner in the grandeur of the Livery Hall. Keeping with AFB tradition, we do hope you will join us for the stirrup cup in the ante room following dinner.

Both the AFB and Drapers’ Hall will be following all current government guidelines to keep our guests safe and ensure a memorable and wonderful evening for all.

We are keen to hold this event in 2021 and provide an opportunity for all of our members and guests to meet in person.  We know meeting and networking with your peers is one of the reasons so many of you join our events.  We are delighted with the level of bookings so far, but we are only able to hold this event if we secure a certain number of delegates by Friday 10 September – should we not get the desired bookings, then unfortunately the event is no longer financially viable, and we would regretfully have to cancel.

For those of you who are keen to join us, please do book early so we can hold this dinner and celebrate in person with you once again.

  • Individual bookings – £199 + VAT. Rates for table bookings can be found below – both individual and table bookings can be made on the AFB member portal.
  • Table of Ten – £1990 + VAT
  • Table of Twelve – £2388 + VAT

Please do join us along with your partners, friends, colleagues and/or clients at this  relaxed and enjoyable occasion.
