“A truly enjoyable day. You went to a lot of trouble to organise an event which went off flawlessly … The photo book was a nice touch. Thank you for a fine lunch and some hilarious old memories.”
Christmas Carol Service
With the snow falling outside, we shared a beautiful Nine Lessons and Carols service in College Chapel, with music sung by the College Schola Cantorum, College’s top choral ensemble, Following the service, mince pies and mulled wine were served in the Chatfeild-Roberts Library.
“Many thanks for a really lovely Carol Service. The singing and music were fabulous, the snow gave a magical air and we had a wonderful time.”
Henley Royal Regatta
Guests enjoyed access to Stewards’ Enclosure tickets at Henley Royal Regatta and, during the break in racing, a picnic lunch served in the Society gazebos at Henley Cricket Club.
“Lunch was a fresh small feast that topped a great day to reminisce of happy days at College.”
A thank you to members of the 1841 Society (our regular givers who support the Annual Fund) and Hugh Reeves Society (those who have included a legacy to College in their will). Guests were invited to a picnic lunch at Collge Speech Day, while watching the cricket fixtures: XI v Gloucestershire Gipsies and Girls’ XI v Cheltenham Cricket Club.
Cheltenham Cricket Festival
A family-friendly day at the Cheltenham Cricket Festival. Society guests joined Cheltenham College staff in a joint College and Society marquee to watch the National Counties Match, Gloucestershire v Wiltshire. Although the pouring rain soon stopped play, the mood remained high as we enjoyed a BBQ lunch and afternoon tea with the Ashes playing on screens inside the marquee.
