Fifty at fifty

I bumped into my old mucker Charles Knevitt, former architecture correspondent of The Times, at his 50th birthday party at Chelsea Arts Club.

Charles, now fundraising for Liverpool University's bicentenary, is, unusually, a member both of CAC and the Athenaeum.

The difference between the establishments is that at the latter, if a member is caught in the club with a woman, he is expelled.

Down at Chelsea, if you are caught without one, they send one up.
