SOF Annual Dinner - SATURDAY 24th March 2018

College Crest



Simon Dougherty writes: The Society of Old Framlinghamians Annual Dinner will be held on Saturday 24 March 2018 at the Royal Air Force Club, 128 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PY and an invitation is extended to all members of the Society - together with their partners and guests - to attend this prestigious event. 

Prior to the dinner, the Society will hold its Annual General Meeting in the Ballroom (on the first floor of the Royal Air Force Club) at 6.15pm. While it is being held, partners and guests will be able to relax in the ground floor Churchill Bar which will be open from 6.00pm.  Pre-dinner drinks will be served in the Churchill Bar from 7 o’clock, with dinner being served in the first floor Ballroom at 7.30pm. Dress is Black Tie or equivalent. 

The cost of the dinner is £60 per head including half a bottle of wine.  We are subsidising younger OFs – so the first 20 OFs aged under 30 years on 24 March 2018, to apply and pay for places, will be charged only £30 – this is a remarkable offer!  After the meal. we have arranged a bar extension in the Churchill Bar up to midnight.

In previous years, some members wishing to attend the Society’s Annual Dinner have requested to apply for places prior to the New Year as they spend the early months of the year overseas in warmer climates.  Consequently, I have brought back the earliest date for applications to November.

A letter with full details may be downloaded here and an application form here.  Tables will be arranged to seat 10 so you can reserve a table for your group or apply for individual tickets – just fill in the application form as appropriate.

The closure date for applications is noon on Monday 12 March 2018.  However, cancellation without financial penalty may be made until Sunday 18 March 2018.

Transport from Framlingham College to the RAF Club and return has been arranged. This is unlikely to stop at any other locations.  If you wish to take advantage of this, please contact me by a separate email (annualdinner@oldframlinghamian.com) – with the Subject Line of ‘Dinner Transport’.

No accommodation is available at the Royal Air Force Club for non-members, but reasonably priced accommodation is widely available in London on Saturday nights at short notice from a number of websites.

Please address any questions to me by email at annualdinner@oldframlinghamian.com or call me on 07808 931 656.
