BMSS41 Inclusive Social Evening
The BMSS Annual Meeting has evolved, in response to members’ wishes, to incorporate an inclusive social event. BMSS41 will feature a selection of local beers and a traditional Yorkshire Pie & Pea Supper with an optional dash of Henderson’s Relish, Sheffield’s unique contribution to the culinary canon. Delegates are advised not to allow the phrase ‘Worcester Sauce’ to pass their lips whilst within Sheffield’s City limits as this may provoke an impolite ‘invitation to withdraw’ from the assembled company!
