No bubbly for the Board

What could be more civilised? A £200-a-head champagne reception before attending a celebration concert for the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Board of Deputies had hoped to attract 200 guests to its fundraiser.

But it seems the price and the timing — on the evening of the Closer to Israel parade earlier that day, although the Board had booked the date first — may have been a problem and the event has been called off.
