A rare opportunity for people interested in things Korean: have dinner with not one but two ambassadors. H.E. Warwick Morris, British ambassador to Seoul, will be addressing the Anglo-Korean Society and friends on 22 March, giving his perspectives on UK – ROK relations and trade links. With him will be H.E. Dr Cho Yoon-je, the ROK’s ambassador to the UK.
The talk will be followed by a buffet supper. The event will be held at Young Bean, on the Barbican highwalks (3 St Alphage High Walk, London EC2Y 5EL), a favourite place of mine for their lunchtime buffet, being not a million miles from my employer’s front door. The event is open to all, but you need to book in advance. And if you choose to join the AKS before then you get a cheaper price for the evening.

Below is a map. The place is probably easiest to find by ascending the escalators at the SW or NW corners of the London Wall / Wood Street intersection, and the walking east (towards Moorgate) along the north side of London Wall at the highwalk level. You pass a not terribly wonderful pub, and the restaurant is a bit further along. If you pass a tailors, you’ve gone too far. Nearest tube is St Pauls or Moorgate, with Bank and Barbican not far behind.
