Thank you for your patience whilst we have been considering all our options in relation to this year’s Ladies Lunch.

Given the current government guidelines, sadly we feel that we are unable to implement social distancing successfully enough to be able to give you all the LOROS Ladies Lunch experience that you know and love, and therefore we have made the tough decision to cancel this year’s LOROS Ladies Lunch.

We understand this may be disappointing news for you all, however, our main priority will always be to keep our event attendees, their relatives, friends, our staff, volunteers and the wider community safe.

Our fantastic guest speaker, Sherrie Hewson has very kindly agreed to speak at next year’s event (date to be confirmed) where we hope you will all join us once again. Sadly we are unable to carry over any initial reservations and bookings for 2021 will open towards the end of this year but as a replacement, we have been working hard to create something you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home, our Afternoon Tea Picnic Week


Along with the rest of our community, LOROS has been closely watching and following the advice and guidance offered by the UK Government and Public Health England regarding the current coronavirus pandemic.

In light of this new advice, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the LOROS Ladies Lunch which will now take place on Tuesday 22nd September 2020 at King Power Stadium. We hope that you will continue to join us in welcoming guest speaker, Sherrie Hewsonfor this much-anticipated event.

LOROS President, Jennifer, Lady Gretton DCVO, invites you and your friends to join us for a delightful three-course lunch with guest speaker Sherrie Hewson.

Sherrie is one of the UK's most popular television personalities known for her roles on the ITV soaps operas Coronation Street, Crossroads and Emmerdale. Along with numerous other roles, since her television and screen career began in the early seventies, she was a panellist on the lunchtime chat show Loose Women from 2013-2018, was a finalist in Big Brother in 2015 and played Joyce Temple in Benidorm from 2012-2018.

There will be a range of stalls selling elegant gift items that will be open from 10am and after the event.

In addition to a delightful three-course lunch, hosted by LOROS President, Jennifer, Lady Gretton DVCO, there will also be a raffle and stand up bingo which are both optional and priced at £5 per person to enter.
