Dress code: Black tie / National dress / Lounge suits

The Japan Society invites members and guests to join us for a special Annual Dinner in Rugby World Cup year at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham Stadium. We are delighted to welcome Eddie Jones, head coach of the England national rugby team, as our special guest in conversation with Japan Society Chairman, Bill Emmott.

Those who heard Eddie Jones speak to the Japan Society in 2016 will know how engaging and entertaining he is. On rugby of course, but also on questions of effective management and his experience as coach of both Japan and England national teams. With the World Cup fast approaching, we look forward to thoughts on Japan as a venue, expectations for the four teams from the British Isles and of the hosts Japan and much more.

Guests opting for Package 1 will start the evening in the World Rugby Museum, including the special exhibition Brave Blossoms: the history of rugby in Japan, where curator Phil McGowan will be on hand to share highlights of the museum including the Calcutta Cup and World Cup. You will then move through the tunnel to the pitch side area, to absorb the stadium atmosphere on your way to dinner.

Those opting for Package 2 will go straight to the Spirit of Rugby Suite for a drinks reception, before taking their seats for dinner.

The Japan Society annual dinner is traditionally a black tie event and many guests will wear formal dress, but for those who prefer lounge suits, this is perfectly acceptable. Most people will be sitting at round tables of 10. If you have any seating preferences, please specify with whom you wish to be seated. Please also inform us of any special dietary requirements. Tickets will be sent to all those attending.

To reserve your place, please call the Japan Society office on 020 3075 1996 or email events@japansociety.org.uk or submit the online booking form.

Cancellation Policy
A full refund will be given where notice of cancellation is received at least 72 hours prior to the event. In other cases, refunds will be given at the discretion of the Japan Society and event partners.

We are very grateful to JTI for their support which enables us to offer discounted tickets to all members and a further discount to members under 30, ensuring that the event can be enjoyed by everyone.
