Forest reception and book launch

I am pleased to announce that Forest supporter Ranald Macdonald will be hosting a very special reception on Monday 22 June.

The event, at Boisdale of Belgravia, is to mark Forest's 30th anniversary and the publication of Christopher Snowdon's impressive new book Velvet Glove, Iron Fist: A History of Anti-Smoking.

Expect cocktails, canapes and live music. Chris will be signing copies of his long-awaited book and I imagine there will be one or two (short!) speeches.

Entry by invitation only. If you have attended Forest events in the past you will be on our guest list. If you haven't and would like to attend please send your full name and address to Nicky (

Note: Ranald was featured in the Independent on Sunday yesterday. See HERE. See also Chris's website HERE.

Chris is a witty and engaging chap who I have heard speak. Being at Boisdales this should be a terrific evening and the heaters in the smoking terrace are outstanding. This should be a great night and I look forward to meeting everyone.

Nice profile of the admirable Ranald in 'The Independent' - but why no mention of his opposition to the Ban ?
