As always, we were delighted to see so many alumni at our celebrations to coincide with the University-wide Alumni Weekend, 15-17 September.
On Friday evening, alumni saw some of the highlights of the Griffith Institute’s Egyptian antiquities archive, including Howard Carter’s journals, and had the opportunity to catch up with old friends over drinks at the Randolph Hotel. This was a truly fascinating evening and a wonderful start to a busy weekend of events.
On Saturday afternoon, members of the St Hugh’s 1975 1st VIII enjoyed afternoon tea in College to celebrate the mounting of their commemorative blade in the foyer of the Main Building. Festivities continued with our annual Gaudy on Saturday evening, with this year’s celebrations focused particularly on those who matriculated in 1956, 1961-1963, 1981-1983, 1993-1995 and 2011-2013. The evening began with Evensong in the Chapel, followed by a drinks reception, a delicious four-course meal in the Dining Hall and jazz and dancing in Mordan Hall.
