Coronavirus / COVID-19:

It is with regret, that due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have decided to postpone this year’s AREF Annual Dinner & Awards. The new date is Tuesday 30th March 2021. We would like to advise members that we will issue full refunds and will not charge any cancellation fees.  We are now taking bookings for the new date. 

We are taking bookings for the new date - click here to book a table.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise members accordingly.

Tables and Hosted Bars:

Dinner tables of both 10 and 12 are available for AREF members to book.  The cost of your table includes:  Champagne reception, three course dinner with coffee, entertainment and access to the post-dinner reception in the The Crypts.  Drinks are not included in the cost of the table (drinks can be pre-ordered once your booking is confirmed).  There is access to a cash bar.

Hosted bars for the Champagne reception are also available to book for a small fee.  These can be branded with your logo and allow you to pre-order drinks. They are an ideal place for you to entertain your guests before the dinner.


Tables for x12 people = £2280 + VAT

Tables for x10 people = £1900 + VAT

Hosted Bar = £50 + VAT

Tables and hosted bars can be paid via debit/credit card or invoice.  If paying by invoice then please note that bookings will not be confirmed until payment is received and all payments are to be received no later than 11th August 2020.  Full T&C's can be found here.


This year, in addition to the entertainment in the Great Hall during the dinner, guests will be treated to live entertainment as they join us for post-dinner drinks in The Crypts, where a cash bar will be available.


This year we are working with LandAid, the property industry's charity, to help raise money to help stop youth homelessness. If you would like to help with this very important cause, there is an optional donation of £100 per table, please add your donation at the time of booking your table.


Guest Information & drinks pre-orders

Once you have booked a table, we will be in touch with full details on how to submit your guest names, drinks pre-orders and dietary requirements.
