The biggest ever Christmas dinner organized by the association was held for the second year running at Shanghai Slim’s, one of the best-rated steak restaurants in the city and housed in a beautiful concession-era colonial villa. A full traditional dinner of turkey, potatoes and stuffing was served alongside Christmas crackers, giving the alumni a warm feeling of London at Christmas time.
