As we emerge from two years of lockdown, the District 91 team are holding an in-person event on Saturday, 7th May in London to celebrates getting together in real life again. This is a wonderful addition to the District 91 Conference and all Toastmasters and guests are welcome.

Join us from 7 to 11:30pm at The Chesterfield, Mayfair, 35 Charles Street, Mayfair, London, W1J 5EB

We have thrown the formal gala dinner and black tie format out of the metaphorical window this year. Instead, we will be enjoying each other’s company at one of London’s finest boutique hotels. With a smart casual dress code, we embrace informality, connection, and congeniality.

The evening will be a chance for us to catch up and chat with old friends and make some new ones, to toast our Toastmaster journey so far and celebrate the success of our fellow Toastmasters entering the Hall of Fame*.

*Hall of Fame will also be live-streamed.

The ticket price for this event is £38, which is IN ADDITION to your regular Conference ticket. This ticket includes a buffet. Please indicate any dietary requirements using the link in your confirmation email.

Limited number of tickets available, so don’t wait for too long and book now.

For our in-person event this year, we have chosen a fantastic venue. The Chesterfield Mayfair is “quintessentially British”, with a classic charm and unique personality. Located on Charles Street, in the heart of Mayfair, the nearest tube station is Green Park.

As we are all storytellers, you may be interested to know that The Chesterfield Mayfair has a rich history. It was built on the grounds of Berkely House, which was originally constructed in 1660, shortly after the restoration of the monarchy.

No 36, one of the three houses on the grounds of Berkeley House, which later became the Chesterfield, was owned in the 19th Century by MP David Kerr, who was at one point charged with ‘indecent and obscene language’ following an ‘alcohol-fuelled incident’. Of course, unlike David Kerr, as Toastmasters, we must refrain from using such language in our speeches!  

In 1900 the same house, No 36, became home to Sir William Harcourt, the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the day. In 1943, No 34 was opened as a club for visiting American forces by Clementine Churchill, wife of Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

These days, the Chesterfield Mayfair, which derives its name from its proximity to Chesterfield Hill, is renowned for serving the best Dover sole in London. Also for its unusually-themed afternoon teas, molecular cocktails, and gin and whiskey-tasting experiences.
