REUNION EVENT:  SATURDAY 23RD NOVEMBER 2019 FOR TWO NIGHTS IN OXFORD

I have been asked many times "When is the next Reunion?"  I can't believe three years have gone by since we had our last very successful Reunion Event in Oxford.  I have investigated several different locations for our Reunion this year but together with the rest of the team we finally decided that Oxford was in fact the obvious choice because it's easily accessed from all over the UK.  The hotel did a fantastic job in 2016 and we are sure we can rely on the same high quality of accommodation, food, service etc. again.  The hotel is within a 20 minute walking distance to the centre of town .  For those who would prefer not to walk there are busses stopping every 5 minutes from outside the hotel.  The hotel has a Spa and Swimming pool.

We have organised a busy weekend but there will be plenty of time for guests to relax around the hotel.  Included in the programme is a painting demonstration by Joe Dowden, an Art History Lecture by Alice Foster, tickets to the Christ Church College Picture Gallery, reserved seats for Sunday Evening's Choral Evensong and on Monday morning tickets to Christ Church college with a guide which will include The Masters, Pocock and the Cathedral Gardens, The Great Hall, The Quads including Tom Quad and The Meadow.   The tour will be on the history of the College, this would include Cardinal Wolsey, King Henry VIII, King Charles I, Student Life, Filming at Christ Church including Harry Potter and of course Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll

We hope you will decide to join us.
