Needle and Thread Gaudy (2002-03)
Needle and Thread Gaudy for those who matriculated in 2002-2003
PLEASE NOTE: Tickets for this dinner have now sold out. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please contact Jen.
Traditionally held at the beginning of the New Year, this dinner involves the College’s Bursar threading a needle into each guest’s jacket and advising them to be thrifty in the coming year. Needles were historically popular as Christmas gifts but it is thought that this Gaudy’s customs are a pun on the College founder's name, Eglesfield—the French words ‘aiguilles et fils’ meaning needles and threads.
This year we are delighted to invite Old Members from the matriculation years 2002 and 2003 to this Gaudy.
Overnight College accommodation will be available for Gaudy guests at £40 (including breakfast).
