Algy Cluff

Saturday 14th October 20:15 - 21:15 | Royal Yacht Squadron

Enjoy a tipple at the Royal Yacht Squadron with famed raconteur, Algy Cluff.  Ex-Grenadier Guardsman, Algy Cluff, is the longest-serving oilman in the North Sea. He also chaired The Spectator for 25 years, belonged to London’s smartest clubs and has been described as a cross between James Bond and Indiana Jones. In his memoir he reflects on his extraordinary life – high jinks in the Army, leisurely City luncheons fuelled by pink gins, drilling successfully for oil in the North Sea, mining diamonds in Africa and becoming friends with such varied figures as Margaret Thatcher and Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe. Drinks will be available for purchase from the bar.
