On a scorching Saturday, with weather more akin to Mumbai than Mayfair, the London clubhouse played host to the annual Summer Ball, this time themed to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence. 

Members and their guests, many of whom arrived in traditional Indian garb, were welcomed into the garden for drinks and storytelling from Peter Chand, before heading up to the Hall of India and Pakistan for an exquisite three-course meal, fusing British and Indian cuisine. Entertainment included more traditional stories from Peter Chand and dancing courtesy of Bollywood Vibes.

After dinner, guests headed down to the Duke of York Bar to relax and listen to the world famous sitar player Johnathan Mayer, headed into the Central Lounge for some mendhi art from our professional artists or into the Princess Alexandra Hall for some dance lessons.
