On 1st Feb 2017 Boisdale of Belgravia hosted ‘The Boisdale Life Editors Lunch’ to celebrate the very best of the fantastic columnists who have contributed to the amazing success of Boisdale Life Magazine over the last two years. The lunch was delicious and very long. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the presentation of the first ‘Boisdale Life Forrest Libertarian Award by Forrest Managing Director Simon Clark to Mark Littlewood, Director General of the Institute of Economic Affairs. Forest was founded in 1979 by Sir Christopher Foxley-Norris, a former Battle of Britain fighter pilot, to represent adults who choose to consume tobacco.
