Feb­ru­ary 1st, Bois­dale Life Mag­a­zine, of the epony­mous restau­rant group, host­ed The Bois­dale Edi­tors Lunch; a cel­e­bra­tion of the excel­lent colum­nists who have con­tributed to the mag­a­zine over the last two years. The lunch pro­vid­ed an oppor­tu­ni­ty for Bois­dale Life to present the first Bois­dale Life Lib­er­tar­i­an of the Year in asso­ci­a­tion with For­est’ award and rev­el in the opin­ions and thoughts of some of the most icon­ic names in jour­nal­ism and soci­ety. Con­trib­u­tors to the mag­a­zine have includ­ed: Tom Park­er-Bowles, William Sitwell, Baroness Trump­ing­ton, Burt Reynolds, Claire Fox, Stan­ley John­son, Rachel John­son and Nan­cy Dell’Ollio.
