Dinner in Chapel 8 March

Our series of dinners commemorating 100 years of Chapel

It was once again an evening of fine food and fond memories on Friday 8 March as we hosted our final dinner to celebrate the Chapel centenary. We were delighted to be joined not only by a range of alumnae spanning the years from 1982 to 2019, but also by former members of staff Clive Morris, Olivier Hubert and Emilie Prior.

The evening began with drinks and canapes in Old School Hall, accompanied by delightful clarinet music from our own students. The guests were then shown around our new Sixth form centre, the Benedict Building, before returning to Old School Hall for a welcome address by Headmistress Rebecca Dougall. Everyone then made their way to the beautifully dressed Chapel where they enjoyed catching up with old friends, reminiscing and swapping anecdotes over a delicious three-course meal including ballontine of guinea fowl with wild mushrooms, braised baby leek, bean and thyme cottage pie and blood orange tart with blood orange marmalade and coconut ice cream.

This last Chapel dinner clearly brought much joy to our guests, who were kind enough to share their thoughts of the evening with us:

Warmest thanks for a wonderful evening on Friday. Becky's speech was very well pitched, and a good way to start the evening. It was a pleasure to see the Chapel so beautifully decorated, and the Prefects were a credit to the school.

The chef and catering team outdid themselves, especially with the seasonal blood orange pudding and that delicious marmalade.

Just wanted to say what a great time Friday evening was and to thank you and all the team for all the hard work that went into it.

I would happily return to similar events in the future – so many happy memories of the people there who I knew, and there were very few that I didn’t know. It was a lovely, relaxed time and the food was great. I haven’t laughed so much for a long time either!
