Gatherings

Chester Club Gatherings are informal events open to all members and friends. The majority of these events are perennial affairs that have a long history and are looked forward to each year by the members. The events tend to happen around December and January but on occasion there are more events scheduled during the year. The gatherings are an excellent opportunity to make new friends and have a little fun in some of the most historic venues in Chester.

What is normally included

Chester Business Club gatherings are opportunities to meet up with fellow members and as such rarely include speakers. However, there is always a centrepiece to the event such as the wonderful choral singers at the Bishop of Chester’s Christmas Drinks.

The types of venues people can look forward to visiting

Gatherings are held at some of Chester’s most historic and traditional venues. The “Christmas in the Trenches’ gathering is held in the historic and fantastically quirky Albion Pub located in Park Street very close the walls. The Christmas drinks reception held every year at the home of the Bishop of Chester is an informal occasion with wine and canapés to welcome in the Christmas period all topped off with carols from the Cathedral choristers.

The features and benefits of attending

The gatherings whilst informal are an excellent opportunity to network with other local business owners and dignitaries from the Chester area. The gatherings are extremely popular and sell out very quickly, especially at smaller venues like the Albion.
