Meet the Speakers at our Pre-Event Dinners

Prior to Addresses and our Friday Night Debates the Union Society treats the guest speakers to a three-course dinner, either in lounge suits (before addresses and panel discussions) or black-tie (before our debates), with attendance open to both members and non-members. It provides a guaranteed opportunity to chat to the speakers on a less formal basis and secures a reserved, front-row seat for the Meeting afterwards.

Dinners are held before each speaker event in the Marriott County Hotel from 6.15pm and include a three-course meal with wine. The costs are as follows:

  • £25 for members
  • £30 for non-members

If you're elected as a General Committee member or Officer, the price is reduced even further too!

In all, it's really easy to sign up and anyone is welcome to take up this brilliant value offer. Just come to the office on Palace Green and give your name to our Office Manager. Alternatively, email us at or phone us on 0191 384 3724.

Please note: dinner places tend to go very quickly, so it is important to contact us towards the beginning of the week!
