Annual Dinner and AGM

Annual General Meeting

The OCC Annual General Meeting is open to all members to attend (with an online voting form since 2021 AGM for those unable to attend) and is held just before the Annual Dinner at the same venue to enable as many members as possible to attend.

The agenda is determined by the Club’s Constitution with all meeting material available at least a week beforehand.

Annual Dinner

The annual dinner is held in March at a prestigious venue in Gloucester.  Previous dinners have been held at the School, Kingsholm Rugby Stadium and more recently, at St. Mary de Crypt church, acknowledging the origins of the school.

Invitations are sent at the beginning of the year.

Example AGM and Dinner Invitation

(The one that never was.)

On behalf of your President and the Committee of the Old Cryptians’ Club, I am pleased to invite you to the Old Cryptians’ Club AGM and Annual Reunion Dinner.

For the second year running, the event will be held at the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolrooms, Southgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 1PT. The venue, which completed a major renovation last year, proved very popular at the 2019 dinner, which was very well attended.
