Mark your calendars and get ready for an extraordinary night at the Southern Section Annual Banquet!

The IBDSouthern Section Chairman, Joe Fifield, invites you to the Annual Banquet, complete with a four course banquet with beers matched to each course and cask beers - all supplied by Section members.

To encourage younger brewers and distillers to attend we will again offer up to ten free places to younger members. If you wish to apply for one of these places please e-mail Steve a brief CV and the reasons you think that you should be offered one of the places.

No overnight accommodation is available at the venue but we have a recommended hotel list.

We will not have a guest speaker this year in order to have more time to catch up and socialise.

Following the positive feedback of last year's sustainabilty seminar, we are hosting a sustainability seminar on the same day before the banquet in the evening. Click here to find out more information and book your place.

The dress code this year is “dress to impress!” Black tie optional.


Why You Should Attend:

  • Celebrate the achievements of the IBD candidates
  • Socialise and expand your professional network 
  • Enjoy good company and food in a top-class venue


  • The nearest tube stations are Covent Garden or Holborn


  • £120 - includes beers, 4 course dinner, and coffee.

Deadline: Friday, 10 November 2023 at 17:00.
