The CQSA meets six times a year at The Farmer's Club, located at 3 Whitehall Court, London SW1A 2EL, which is close to Embankment Tube station and Charing Cross mainline station. Meetings generally take place on the fourth Friday* of January, March, May (AGM), June, September and November. Although with COVID-19 this is flexible and in 2022 the January meeting has been moved to Friday 29 April. 

Meetings are held over an excellent lunch with wine and preceded by a Speaker - all within a relatively informal schedule.

Typical Lunch Menu  Wines list

We gather at 12:30pm for drinks and sit down at 1:00pm for our Speaker, followed by lunch. The meeting normally lasts until around 3:00pm.

Members are encouraged to invite professional colleagues and clients as guests. The only rule - imposed by the Farmers Club - requires meeting attendees to be smartly dressed in a jacket and tie.

Our meetings provide a time to network, to discuss business, the industry and the professions.

  • The BCIS in 2022
