SAVE THE DATE
All Vincent’s members, their spouses, partners, and guests, are cordially invited to the 2019 Vincent’s Club Dinner which will be held in the magnificent Merchant Taylor’s Hall,
30 Threadneedle Street, London, EC2R 8JB,
on Wednesday 4th September 2019.
The Dinner Chairman is Dr David Hemery, CBE, (St. Catherine’s, 1969, Olympic and Commonwealth Gold medallist and Superstars winner) who will introduce The Right Honourable Lord Coe, CH, KBE. (Seb Coe is himself a multiple Gold medal winner and is currently President of the IAAF)
The Club is holding a dinner in September as this year is the 150th Anniversary of OURFC who will be holding a celebration the night before the Rugby Varsity match in December. In addition, Vincent’s is taking the opportunity to allow the focus to be on other sports, including athletics. The ideal table size is ten, and members booking a whole table will receive a discount.
Whilst the primary aim of this Celebration of Sport dinner is to have an evening of good fellowship with both members and guests, the Club also wishes to build on the remarkable success of the New York dinner in March, and encourage members to support their Club, in particular by contributing towards endowing the Bannister Awards to assist outstanding Oxford sportsmen and women. The Club is proud that the Vincent’s Awards are the largest block of funding open to scholar-athletes competing in officially registered sports at Oxford University.
Following the death of former Vincent’s President Sir Roger Bannister, and with the encouragement of his family, the club is seeking to raise capital for the Sports Development Fund to endow at least one new major Bannister Award.
Booking details are available on our events page.
