BAQ Annual Bar Dinner 2023
For the first time in history the annual bar dinner was held in a shed – some may say appropriately. But it was a very lovely shed at Howard Smith Wharves. Good food and a good time was had by all if the photos are anything to go by. You can see if you made the cut below. Peter Dunning KC battled through a serious case of sexy voice (or a “cold” as non-barristers are wont to call it) to give the toast to the judiciary after our supreme leader Damien O’Brien KC welcomed all to the party. Promises were made about dancing late into the night. The official photographer was definitely off the clock by that time so we have no admissible evidence about what occurred at Mr Percival’s. Damien’s speech is included below for the reliving. The Honourable Justice Flanagan responded to the toast with a very funny and punchy speech which was appreciated by all.
