The Barn Elms Manor Banquet with Jonathan Wright and special guest Ophelia Field,  7 – 9pm, indoors in the Kingfisher Cafe

Jonathan Wright and Ophelia Field, author of The Kit Cat Club, present  a contemporary take on the 18th century Mutton Pie Banquet. In the 1700s, Barn Elms Manor stood on the London WWT site. It was home to publisher Jacob Tonson, founder and secretary of the Kit Cat Club, whose members were influential writers and politicians. Enjoy a vegan ‘mutton pie’ and a drink in a specially engraved toasting glass whilst Ophelia and Jonathan discuss the Kit-Cat Club Banquets and their infamous toasts to the beauties of the day.
