UK: The hugely popular FETA annual lunch, that had to be postponed twice last year, has now been scheduled to take place on Friday November 5, 2021.
Traditionally held in April at The Brewery, London, last year’s lunch was one of many industry events to succumb to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. Initially postponed to December 10, the event was ultimately cancelled and April 15 proposed as a tentative date for this year.
Now this year’s date has been confirmed as November 5, moving the event to a Friday for the first time.
“When we made the original plan to postpone from April 2020 to December 2020 we were extremely encouraged by the support of members and the vast majority of bookings and sponsorships were rolled forward to the new date,” said FETA chief executive Russell Beattie. “We would like to reassure members that we will similarly seek to honour existing bookings as we move to this new date, but of course we will offer refunds for those unable to make the new option. We are delighted that Kevin Keegan has confirmed his availability to be our guest speaker at the Lunch and we are all looking forward to this occasion.”
