Summer Garden Party – 2018

Date: 7 July 2018
Time: 15:00 – 18:00
Venue: Bath
Price: £10

 

We have served Pimm's and sunshine at the Oxford University Society Summer Garden Party, enjoying a chat with old friends, and meeting other alumnae/i living in and around Bristol and Bath. The Garden Party was a wonderful opportunity to get together and relax, share memories of Oxford, and talk about plans for the summer and beyond!

The Garden Party was held in a beautiful garden in Bath of one of our members, a short distance north of the Royal Crescent.

This event was open to all alumni and current students of Oxford and their friends, families and guests.

The ticket price included entry to the event, savoury nibbles and cakes as well as soft drinks, wine and Pimm's.
