8.30 p.m The Founders’ Day Supper – Parliament Suite
This occasion is open to all Old Cryptians and those with a connection to the School. With a high profile guest list, this is an evening not to be missed, with excellent food on offer.
On arrival in the historic Parliament Suite a glass of sparkling wine or a soft drink will be served.The meal will consist of a cold buffet that will include a range of meats, fish, salads and new potatoes. There will be a choice of desserts, a selection of local cheeses with biscuits followed by coffee. Crypt students will be on hand to assist guests as required.
This year is rather special because a new history of the School is being launched during the evening. It has been written by Charlie Hannaford with contributions from the School and Old Cryptians. Signed copies of the illustrated book will be on sale.
The cost of the meal will be £30. Wine will be available at a nominal price and can be ordered from your table. Please complete the reservation form below:
I shall look forward to meeting you during the day and later at the Parliament Rooms.
