British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce at the Carlton Club

During London 2012 Olympic Games, Mayfair Photographer has worked for British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce which has organised one week events promoting Greece. All the conferences, concerts, presentations and other meetings took place at the legendary  Carlton Club.

Carlton Club is the oldest, most elite and most important of all Conservative clubs. Membership of the club is by nomination and election only.

Traditionally only men could become full members. From 1970s onwards, women were allowed to become associate members, meaning they were unable to vote. Just five years ago the tradition was broken and the club admitted women as full voting members. Since becoming Conservative leader in 1975, Margaret Thatcher has been an honorary member of the club and as such, until 2008 was the only female member entitled to full membership.
