EVENT: Members and Friends Celebrate at ABA Christmas Party
Date: 13th December, 2017 Time: 06:00 am - 09:00 pm
The ABA ended the year on a high note, with over one hundred people attending our Christmas party, held in a private room at the Malborough Head, in London's Mayfair.
Guests enjoyed food and drink, entertainment from a jazz duo, and everyone went home with a gift. It was a great way to bring the Association's activities for the year to a close.
