Banquet season continues… with Grant Shapps and ‘a touch of the Orient’

IT’S not just the Holborn and St Pancras Tories that are all set for banquet season, the West End Extra newspaper’s diary reveals that the Westminster Conservatives are also booked in for a £100-a-pop affair later this month. Grant Shapps, the party’s chairman who says he was priced out of living in London by house prices, will be the after dinner speaker at the exclusive East India Club in St James’s.

Dress code? Not fur coats like their Camden colleagues. The invite says ‘black tie’ or ‘a touch of the Orient’.
