Tourism Society prestigious Annual Dinner at the House of Lords
This evening the Tourism Society held its prestigious Annual Dinner at the House of Lords, hosted by the Society's President Lord Thurso MP FTS and attended by Society members and their guests. The black-tie evening included a drinks reception followed by a delicious three-course meal sponsored by made.
Following the after-dinner speeches Lord Thurso presented the Tourism Society Award to Timothy West and Prunella Scales for their popular television series ‘Great Canal Journeys’. Unfortunately they were unable to pick up the award in person due to filming commitments, but Dani Neumann from Spun Gold TV was on hand to receive the award on their behalf from Lord Thurso.

The dinner itself, held at the House of Lords, was a great success; 110 members and guests of the Society attended and enjoyed a very interesting speech by John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow Airport.
