We will celebrate our traditional Boar’s Head Gaudy on Saturday 16 December 2023 for Old Members who matriculated in the years 1988 or 1989.

Invitations to join the ballot for places will be sent out in September.

The programme will begin with tea and Christmas cake in the Shulman Auditorium, followed by a recital of seasonal music in Chapel with the College Choir.

The Gaudy is combined with the Boar’s Head Ceremony, which takes place before dinner. Guests are asked to assemble in Hall by 6.25pm when the Boar’s Head will make its ceremonial entrance.

After the Ceremony, champagne will be served in the Upper Library, followed by dinner at 7.15pm. Holy Communion will be celebrated in Chapel on Sunday morning.

The Gaudy dinner is free of charge. B&B is available for Saturday 14 December at £50pppn.

Please note that due to space restrictions in Hall, this is an Old Member only event (for matriculation years 1988 and 1989).
