Be an ambassador for a night

That's right, rub shoulders with the London diplomatic corp but just don't pretend you represent some obscure country, as they all know each other!

Seriously, Liberal International British Group's annual diplomats' reception is an unusual opportunity to mix with a wide range of people stationed at embassies in London.

The event is also attended by Lib Dem MPs and peers interested in international affairs and is hosted this year by Simon Hughes.

My haul of business cards last year included officials of Albania, Bolivia, Honduras, the UAE and Japan, and there are always some representatives present of pretty controversial places, who can be chatted to over a drink.

The event is at the National Liberal Club on Tuesday 25 February from 6-8.30pm. Its only £25 to attend, including wine and canapes.

Since LIBG isn't set up for e-commerce, and we can't be seen scuttling around in front of diplomats collecting cash, anyone wishing to attend should pay the old fashioned way by cheque made out to LIBG to: Wendy Kyrle-Pope, 1 Brook Gardens, London SW13 0LY.
