OKC Dinner

Annual Dinner

The Annual Dinner is generally held in November, either in the Great Hall at the School or at a high-profile London venue like the House of Commons, King’s College London or the All England Lawn Tennis Club (Wimbledon).

OKC members are seated either by year group, or with fellow members of their accredited activity like the Rugby Club or Lodge. The Senior and Junior School Head Masters are always invited with principal members of staff and the current Captain and Vice-Captains of the School.

A key speaker with a connection to the Club gives a brief after-dinner speech.

This is an opportunity to gather a group of contemporaries for an excellent evening out or simply turn up and re-connect with old friends.

Bookings are made via the Payments page.
