Saturday, 22 September 2018 - 12:00pm

We would like to invite you to attend a Garden Party held at Clare Hall on Saturday 22 September 2018 to say “thank you” for helping your College. This event is open to anyone who has supported Clare Hall through making a gift, volunteering their time and expertise and to all those who have indicated that they wish to leave a legacy to Clare Hall in their will.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us in the lovely Fellows’ Gardens for this event and take the perfect opportunity to bring your family back to College during the University Alumni Festival.

The afternoon’s programme will start from 12.00 with a drink on arrival, followed by buffet lunch.  At lunch, the President will say a few words of thanks, and there will be an opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues. Afternoon tea will be served, and there will be garden games for families. 

You are most welcome to bring a partner or spouse or family members.

Specific timings will be available online on our Life Members events pages at the end of August.

For more information, please contact Catherine Wise, Development Officer on 01223 332368 or email on

Please book to indicate numbers and dietary requirements if necessary.
