Last week I visited the Chelsea Arts Club, the first time in 5 years (shame on me). I've been a member here since time immemorial, or so it seems. Certainly the majority of members that I met are relatively recent and all are from the London area. I was definitely the "odd one out" with my northern accent, which was pointed out to me quite emphatically at times. Unfortunately, my mouth isn't large enough to carry all the marbles necessary to keep up with them!
I had a great time, with the most excellent food imaginable, and too much booze at times. Their chef is of Master Chef standard (the telly programme).
