Events

Chester Business Club hosts a number of events through out the year. The events are either business related or fund raising events but also include formal black tie dinners with speakers. There are also several gatherings scheduled throughout the year to allow members to meet up in a more informal environment. At the bottom of this page you will find a list of upcoming events. Each event includes a brief description of the event itself and links to purchase tickets.

What is normally included

The events are equally spread out throughout the year and include formal dinners with speakers, golf days, charity walks, fund raising gala dinners, breakfast business meetings, and a variety of ad hoc events hosted by members and local businesses.

The types of venues people can look forward to visiting

Over the 30 or more years that the Chester Business Club has been in existence we have forged excellent relationships with many venues, from the historical Albion Pub, and the Bishop of Chester residence, to some of the most impressive hotels in the Chester area.

The features and benefits of attending

All our events offer the opportunity to network and meet new friends but some, like the Charity Walk and Golf day include a competitive element. The formal back tie dinners always include a guest speakers and over the years the Club has been delighted to host some of the most influential people from politics, business, and television.
