Bristol Actuaries Dining Society

Since the late 1970s, BADS has provided actuaries from the Bristol area with the opportunity to discuss topical issues, catch up with the latest gossip, and develop their professional networks over a few drinks and a nice meal. Dinners are friendly and informal, and membership is free.

We aim to meet five or six times a year in venues chosen by the members, ranging from fine dining to country pubs. Places we have visited in the last twelve months include Kathmandu, The Olive Shed, Bulrush, The Spiny Lobseter and The Ivy.

Our dates for 2019/20 are as follows:

Tue 24th September 2019 - New Moon (Clifton Village)
Wed 20th November 2019 (lunchtime) - Pasture
Thu 30th January 2020 - Bar 44 (Clifton Village)
Tue 17th March 2020
Wed 20th May 2020

Our venue is decided by popular vote (with a complex tie-break system!), the top-ten (plus ties) as at today's date are:

1 - Bar 44 (Clifton) - 2 vote(s)
2 - Athena (Westbury) - 2 vote(s)
3 - Grain Barge - 2 vote(s)
4 - Bulrush - 2 vote(s)
5 - Urban Koh-i-Noor - 1 vote(s)
6 - Wallfish and Wellbourne - 1 vote(s)
7 - Bertha's Pizza - 1 vote(s)
8 - Harbour & Browns - 1 vote(s)
8 - Adelina Yard - 1 vote(s)
10 - Bosco Pizzeria - 1 vote(s)

We normally meet in Bristol († although when a mutually convenient date arises there could well be a meal in Manchester!) at 7.00 for 7.30pm.

If you are a qualified actuary in or around Bristol, and fancy the occasional evening out sampling local restaurants with like-minded people, then please email Paul Bowden to register your interest or for further details.

Footnote: The regular BADS attendees would like to thank Andrew Gustar for looking after the 'society' for 10 succesful years (2007-2016).
