2024 Gaudy

The Principal and Fellows of St Hilda's College look forward to welcoming alumnae and their guests to our Gaudy celebrations.

Gaudy 2023 Dinner
21 September, 3pm to 22 September 2024, 5pm

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the St Hilda’s 2024 Gaudy and the 30th, 40th, 50th and 55th Anniversary Reunions for alumnae who matriculated in 1994, 1984, 1974 and 1969. This event is being organised by the Development Office, who work to connect our global alumnae community of over 8000 and to raise funds in support of the College's vision.

While a special invitation is extended to this year’s reunion groups, all St Hilda’s alumnae are welcome to join us.

On the Saturday, we’re inviting all of our returning Senior Members to arrive from 3pm onwards, when you may enjoy a light afternoon tea with our ASM Committee in the Pavilion and riverside terrace, explore the grounds or take to the river on one of our punts. There will also be the opportunity to attend the Annual General Meeting of the Association of Senior Members (ASM), to hear from our Principal, and to join our annual Gaudy service in the Sanctuary.

The evening will begin with drinks and jazz, followed by a Gaudy dinner prepared by our talented chef and his team. After dinner, you will be invited to continue the festivities in the Pavilion or with coffee in the SCR.

On the Sunday morning, our wonderful gardeners will offer a tour of the College gardens. This will be followed by a carvery lunch, after which we very much hope that you will join us in the JdP at 2pm for a concert by outstanding cellist Florian Berner. Florian will be performing a recital of Bach and Vivaldi Suites for Violoncello and Harpsichord. Following the concert there will be an opportunity to observe a student Master Class.

Our 2024 Gaudy coincides with the University’s annual alumni event, Meeting Minds, with talks, tours and performances taking place across the University. We recommend booking the Meeting Minds sessions that you’re interested in early to avoid missing out – you can find more details of their programme here. Booking for the Meeting Minds events will open in the coming days.

You're welcome to book tickets for the Saturday only (including dinner), or for the full Gaudy weekend.
