Lunch and dinner bookings

Please note that bookings for the CML annual dinner tables are initially limited to a maximum of 3 tables per membership/associateship. If your organisational group includes several entities/trading names within a single ‘umbrella’ CML membership/associateship, the maximum initial 3 tables applies per group, not per name.

If you wish to book more than 3 tables at the CML annual dinner, you are welcome to join our waiting list for additional tables on a first-come, first-served basis. If tables remain available for booking by 28 August, we will contact you to confirm additional bookings. Any remaining unconfirmed tables will be re-opened for general booking on Monday 31 August.

While we will make every endeavour to place additional tables as close as possible to original table bookings, we cannot guarantee their location, which will depend on availability at the time.
