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 observing the Hippocras Ceremony 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!
