The Old Nottinghamians' Society Oxford Dinner 2019 will take place on Saturday 4th May. The venue will be the Senior Common Room at St Peter's College.
Grace McConachie (2015-17) and Harry Croasdale (2010-17) invite their fellow Old Nottinghamians and guests to join them. It should be another splendid occasion. Undergraduates, graduates and non-graduates alike agreed that the event last year was very enjoyable. Jack Blowers (2012-17) gives his verdict below at Lincoln College in April 2018.
The Oxford Dinner 2019 will begin with a champagne reception at 6.30pm. A three-course dinner will follow at 7.30pm. Coffee and after dinner mints will finish the meal. The fare should be fit for St Peter's alumnus, chef and broadcaster Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Philip Turton (1973-83), President of the Old Nottinghamians' Society, has sourced the champagne and wine.
St Peter's College is located in New Inn Hall Street. It occupies the site of two of the medieval halls of the University of Oxford. Originally a men's college, it became coeducational in 1979.
Other alumni of St Peter's include Mark Carney, currently Governor of the Bank of England. The Reverend Wilbert Awdry, creator of Thomas the Tank Engine, was also a student there. Alumnae include The Right Reverend Elizabeth Lane, Bishop of Stockport, the first woman consecrated a bishop in the Church of England.
Grace is reading Jurisprudence at New College. Harry is studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at The Queen's College. This year's event should again see a happy mix of female and male, artist and scientist, younger and older ONs.
This is a first-class opportunity for ONs to visit - or revisit - the beautiful city of Oxford. All are welcome!
Tickets for the Oxford Dinner 2019 cost £60. The price for undergraduates and under-21s is £25. Booking is open now in the Society Shop here.
