[Cancelled] Grand Day

19 November 2020 - 19:00 to 23:00

This event is cancelled. Please see our dedicated Covid-19 page for the latest updates on the Inn’s response to Covid-19 (Coronavirus). 

One of the most popular nights among all of the Inn's members. 

This event is offered only once every academic year. Come meet, dine and continue the centuries old tradition of passing the 'loving cup' with some very prestigious guests of the Inn!

A reception followed by dinner. 

I thoroughly enjoyed Grand Night both in terms of company, food and above all the uniqueness of the evening!
