We’re delighted to reveal that this year’s Northern Christmas Lunch will take place at Browns Bar & Brasserie, a lovingly converted banking hall in the heart of Leeds.

Our hosts will serve our guests a three-course festive menu with a selection of crafted meals to choose from. Your food will be prepared with fresh and seasonal ingredients, and accompanied by a complimentary glass of wine.

Before lunch, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy time with the IP profession, from barristers to paralegals, in a relaxed and festive environment. 

Please book as early as possible so Browns have your order in time. The cut off date for bookings is November 22nd.

The Christmas Lunch is our Northern social of the year.

We very much hope you can enjoy it with us.
