The Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch

Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch 2018 logo

The annual Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch will be held at London's Guildhall on 4 April 2019.

The Lunch supports members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces and Veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Lunch is hosted by the Lord Mayor of the City of London, and since 2008 has raised over £1.7m for the British Army's national charity, ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

Organised by ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the event will also be supporting The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

Tickets are now on sale priced at £100 per person, plus a £6 booking fee, which includes unlimited curry, beer and wine, with all proceeds going to charity.

The Lunch will begin at midday and there will be three lunch sittings (at 1230, 1315 and 1400). It will finish at 1500.

For more information, please contact Ellen Brooks on or 020 7307 3321.
