Hosted by The Cambridge Society of London
Sunday 29 March 2020, 12.45pm to 5.30pm BST
Open to: 
Alumni and guests

With our ideal location on the first floor of an elegant grade II listed building overlooking the start of the races, exceptional company, and delightful catering, all the elements are in place for another great Society Boat Race party.

The event opens at 12:45pm in our private room ("the Wolsey Room") in the Duke’s Head pub located on the Surrey Side. There will be an opportunity to enjoy some apéritifs before we sit down for our three-course lunch at 2:15pm. Shortly before the women's race commences at 3:44pm, we will throw open our windows to soak in the atmosphere and gain our vantage points. As the women power off beyond the first stretch, we will turn to our large television screen to watch the whole race unfold. Before long we then will be gripped by the men's contest starting at 4:44pm.

Following the excitement of the races, the room will remain ours, so "ongoing festivities" are guaranteed. As always, our Cambridge members and their friends will provide the most stimulating company.

The booking fee covers entry and food. When book please indicate if you (and your guest) are vegetarian or have other dietary requirements. In fairness to all there will be a cash bar throughout so that each can imbibe according to his or her wishes (and means).

Not to be missed! One guest ticket may be bought for each member attending. Early booking is strongly recommended.
