2022/23 Cryptian Magazine

We have a small number of 2022/23 Cryptian magazines for sale at cost price from the shop.

OCC Buffet – was Annual Dinner

Unfortunately due to a huge rise in costs and being let down by our caterer we are having to postpone the formal annual dinner again. We are hugely disappointed to have to do this but we had little choice. 

HOWEVER, we will still be gathering on 18 June but with a smaller, more informal get together for members in the schoolroom at St Mary de Crypt from 5.00pm – 8.00pm. I do hope you will consider joining us for this as we would love to see members after having been forced apart by the pandemic for so long.

This will replace the usual Founders’ Day Supper too and will be the venue for the handover of the OCC Presidency to Simon Smith.

Tickets will cost around £15 and will include a light buffet with drinks available to buy. Tickets are available from the web shop

Once again I do hope you’ll be able to join us. 

OCC Shop

shopping cart

After some technical challenges following the upgrade to the website we have got the shop up and running again.

The next thing we want to look at is what we should be selling. The ties sell quite well especially before the annual dinner, as does the beanie. Maybe a decent pen with the Club logo?

What do you think would sell, or what would you buy? Send your suggestions to us here.

Call for interest – Old Cryptians Club Blazer

We have had some interest in the OCC Blazer – as nattily modelled by young Briggs – but not yet enough to push the order button.

If you have been deliberating a purchase, now is the time to press the pre-order button to receive your blazer in time for wearing at the annual dinner (maybe).

A versatile article of clothing that will be a super addition to any Old Cryptian’s wardrobe, this blazer shouldn’t be reserved for OCC events; it will be equally at home on the banks of the Thames at Henley, the Garden Stage at the End of The Road festival or deep in the Shed at Kingsholm.


The Crypt School – 475 Years (Special sale price)

Copies of this amazing book, a story and a rich photographic record of the Crypt School, are still available, now at the special price of £10.  Please contact Howard Allen at or on 01452 812638.  Updated order form here 475-Book-order-form, v2.  This was an expensive production in the 475th anniversary of the Crypt and your support will contribute to the financial health of the Old Cryptians’ Club.
