About Town: Georgy, gorge we, pudding and pie!
The Annual St George’s Day Dinner & Celebration of Her Majesty’s Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday proved to be more than a mouthful for the attendees who enjoyed a lavish meal and some rousing renditions of classic English songs such as ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Rule Britannia’.
And as if two celebrations weren’t enough, they also tipped a hat to the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare and the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland.
Co-organised by the British Chamber of Commerce (BCCD) and the Royal Society of St George Denmark (RSSGD), among those in attendance were (left-right) KUKS president Kaj Larssen, who is also the president of the St Andrew’s Society (hence the kilt), RSSGD president Simon Mears, Canadian ambassador André François Giroux and BCCD president Mariano A Davies
The guest of honour was Air Vice Marshal David R Hawkins-Leth.
