Last night the Youth Diplomatic Sevice, Y8, celebrated the succeses of the Y8 Summit in London with an extravagant Gala Dinner, which brought together the delegates of 2013, alumni from past summits and diplomatic partners amid the splendour of the Old Royal Naval College.

Famously described as 'the finest dining hall in Europe', the posh Painted Hall combines the masterpiece of Sir Christopher Wren with the mastery of Nicholas Hawksmoor and offers a glimpse into Britain's marvelous rich history, whilst perched at the edge of the Thames, opposite the bustle of the glorious modern City of London.

The high-class Gala Dinner offered delegates past and present the chance to network in an unparallelled venue, and to be a part of a truly unprecedented event. Distinguished guests included representatives from the UK Government, the embassies and high commissions of the G8 and G20 nations, academic and civil society leaders.

Free refreshments were on offer all night long and guests were given access to a classy three-course meal of the highest quality, as well as a splendid after diner disco in the sophisticated Queen Mary Undercroft. The menu included wondrous sweet chicken spring rolls and silky creamy mash with posh glazed oxtail, baby vegetables and Woodland mushrooms, with expensive coffee being served after nourishment.

Tory Youth Wing member (CF'er) Charlotte Kude organised and helped with hosting and worked very hard during the whole week of the Y8 conference.

Charlotte Kude told tbg - "As one of the volunteer coordinators for the Youth Diplomatic Service, I helped organise the Y8 summit in London, bringing together international delegations of young diplomats to discuss tax policies and the Syrian crisis. Panels successfully produced a final communiqué that was signed by all countries during the gala dinner."

Other CF'ers in attendance included Ben Howlett, Mahyar Tousi, Shaun Dias, Jasmine Rahman, Charlie Winch and Stephen Canning.
