Choir Alumni Association Dinner 2012


We are delighted to invite association members and a guest to the third Magdalene Choir Alumni Association Black Tie Dinner, on Saturday 17th November 2012 here at Magdalene. This is a great opportunity to catch up with friends and spend some time back in Cambridge, and we very much hope to see many of you there.

Preceding the dinner, there will be a special service of Choral Evensong in the Chapel, presided over by the Reverend Philip Hobday, the College Chaplain, and sung by a choir of past and present members conducted by the Precentor, Mr Jonathan Hellyer Jones. You are warmly invited to come along.

It is anticipated that we will have a sung grace before dinner and musical interludes between courses. It would be wonderful if as many association members as possible could be involved in the music making. If you would like to take part in or lead some of the singing, please do let us know on your booking form.

The programme for the day will be as follows:

4.30pm Rehearsal for those singing in Choral Evensong
6.15pm Evensong in Chapel
7.30pm Dinner in Hall
Dress Code: Black Tie

The ticket price for the event is £44 per person. This will include a three course meal with wine, coffee, cheese and port. In addition, we are asking members whether they would be willing to donate an additional amount in order that we might be able to subsidise places for current members of the choir attending. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, the College is unable to offer car parking on site on this occasion, except in the case of those who have special access requirements. These individuals should contact the Alumni and Development Office to register their need for a parking space. For others, the nearest car parks to Magdalene are Pound Hill and Shire Hall; though do note both do charge for parking. Additional information on further parking in Cambridge can also be found here.
