Progressive Dinner Around Horley – 22nd June

Get Booked in for the social event of the summer on Saturday June 22nd!

We will start our evening at the Red Lion pub, where each couple will be told who in Horley will be hosting them (and two other couples) for their first course. Off we go…!

Once we have a first course and a drink or two under our belts, our first hosts send each pair to different hosts, for their main course. And then the same again, for pud. So, during the evening we each eat, drink and laugh with about 20 people – old friends and new – before regrouping in the pub.

This isn’t just for couples. Singles come too, and together we have a great evening. The cost? A bottle of wine and twenty pounds per person. It’s a bargain – and the money we raise helps to fund our village church.

If you would like to come please email: or else ring: 01295 738951
