(15th March 2020)
Over the last twenty years, the Confrérie has prided itself on having never cancelled an event - no matter what. Whether it was the terrorist activities of 7/7 and 21/7 or even the erupting volcano shutting down our airspace, we went ahead in spite of everything.
However, we are now faced with a much more unmanageable, uncertain and potentially deadly set of circumstances. You will all have seen the latest forecasts and how expert advice continues to develop and change.
So, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel all Club events up to and including the AGM and Summer Party on 5th June (this includes the Spring Gala Dinner on 24th April and Julian’s Wine Tasting on 1st May). We will continue, at present, with the Commissioned Members Party on 29th July and plan a major relaunch party for later in the year when hopefully all of this will have cleared up.
However, I would say again that the situation is very fluid and we will react in whatever way is necessary. Please keep an eye on this website for any updates.
NB: Some events in our calendar are actually organised by the Caveaux (independent venues, affiliated with the Confrérie) themselves. Anyone planning to attend those events should contact the venue and check all is well. Obviously, if we are made aware of any such event being cancelled, we will of course post this information on the website.
Finally, I wish you all well for the coming months and look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Welcome to the home of Sabrage. The Confrérie du Sabre d’Or is devoted to promoting the act of Sabrage and the enjoyment of Champagne.
The Heart of the Order is the growing number of Caveaux de Sabrage where Sabrage may be performed.
The Caveaux range from small restaurants and Wine Bars to the grandest of Hotels. They all have two things in common – Champagne and fun. This is a wine and far too good to be left only to special occasions.
A programme of events throughout the year held at prestigious venues gives all our members and their guests excellent value for money and plenty of opportunity for Sabrage as well as enjoying excellent Champagne and food.
Members will have received the very latest issue of The Golden Sabre. Once again, it's a bumper 52 page edition containing all the news and reviews from around the Club, along with articles and hundreds of photos from our Events. Click on the Front cover shown left to download the full issue.
It is possible (indeed, members are encouraged) to Pay Online for certain events, ie those organised directly by the Confrérie, rather than by one of our many affiliated Caveaux. This is achieved via a very efficient and safe system called 'GoCardless'.
The facility is open to Members of the Order who simply need to register their bank account details (just your name, address and email and the numbers that appear at the bottom of your cheques) and future payments for annual subscriptions will be done automatically and payments for Club events can be made by simply 'ticking a box' on the Online Booking Form.
It couldn't be simpler! GoCardless is trusted by over 30,000 businesses (big and small). Click Here for details on security.
Register now for 'GoCardless' payments to the Confrérie (Click Here). If you're not sure whether you are already registered, or you have some other questions, just send us a note by Clicking Here and we'll get back to you.
