Join us for a sumptuous celebration at our renowned Christmas Lunch, a cornerstone of the festive season.

This is our biggest annual gathering, offering a major networking opportunity for our members, friends and community.

We will be returning to the first-class surrounds of the Royal Lancaster to enjoy a four-course menu curated by world-class chefs.

This is your chance to celebrate with your colleagues and to build more connections, offering the ideal environment to draw a busy year to a close.

Our Christmas Lunch is an unmissable event, bringing together all corners of our community. Whether you attend with colleagues, clients or make friends once you arrive, this is not an event to be missed.

The Royal Lancaster underwent an £80 million renovation in 2017, cementing its status as one of London’s best venues.

The lunch will incorporate the presentation of the CITMA awards, including the inaugural Sheila Lesley Volunteer of the Year Award, marking some of our profession’s achievements over the past year.

Along with our awards celebration and lunch, we will also enjoy a drinks reception and will hear from CITMA President Kelly Saliger.
