My old friend Lord St John of Fawsley shows no sign of tiring in respect of his Building of the Year Award, run by the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust (which he chairs) and BSkyB. As ever, the award ceremony will be held at the Savoy, followed by a 'buffet luncheon', which always reminds me of one of his Lordship's catchphrases when the commission held its receptions in St James's Square. 'I believe some light refreshments are available downstairs, ' he would intone.

'Not too light, I hope.' Quails' eggs and bumper glasses of champagne were always the order of the day. Perhaps that could be repeated at the Savoy.
