We will celebrate our traditional Boar’s Head Gaudy again this year, after cancelling in 2021 due to COVID19. It will be held on Saturday 17 December 2022 for Old Members who matriculated in the years 1986 or 1987.

Old Members who booked for last year’s cancelled Boar’s Head Gaudy will receive an invitation to book their place again; the remaining places will then be made available to others in the year groups.

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.
