The Kent Club is proud to announce that it will hold its annual dinner at Boodle’s private members’ club.
Boodle’s is regarded as one of the most prestigious clubs in London, and counts many British aristocrats and notable politicians among its members.
It is the second oldest club in the world, with only White’s being older. Ian Fleming is said to have based the Blades Club from his James Bond novels on Boodle’s (however, Boodle’s itself is referenced in the novels Moonraker and You Only Live Twice). It is reputed that Beau Brummell’s last bet took place at the Club before he fled the country to France.
