The First Guards Club is the Regiment’s Officers’ Dining Club which normally meets once a year for a dinner in London. Occasionally there are other infrequent events such as a Cocktail Party or a Dance.
Membership of the Club is open to all Officers commissioned into the Regiment and currently stands at about 600.
The Club is run by a Committee consisting of a President, Wines Member, Secretary and Treasurer. Additionally, there are three serving and three non-serving members. The serving members are “ex-officio” for the sake of simplicity.
