Leander Club Lunch 2024

University College Boat Club Leander Lunch

Sunday, 9 June 2024, 12.30-3pm
Leander Club, Henley-on-Thames

Friends of UCBC are warmly invited to attend an informal lunch at Leander Club, Henley-on-Thames, for all former members of the Univ Boat Club on Sunday, 9 June 2024. Spouses, partners and friends are very welcome. This event is being organised by Ron Jordan (1963) and Richard Powles (1964).

Some of you may have attended one of the previous lunches that were held at Leander and which have proved to be very popular. This is a great opportunity to meet up with old rowing pals and to make new friends who share the joy of having rowed in a Univ boat on the Isis. So do encourage all those in your old crew(s) to come along to join the generations of Univ rowers who have responded to the call “Come on Univ!”

We will again be inviting current members of the Univ Boat Club to join as the guests of those attending the lunch.

The lunch will be just over a week after Summer Eights, and we shall be able to hear all about the Club’s latest progress on the river, and, hopefully, celebrate new successes.

Cost and donations

The cost for the three-course lunch is £75 per person, to include a pre-lunch drink and wine with the meal.

With prices continuing to rise, the total cost of the event is not fully covered by the lunch price, however the organisers are reluctant to increase this for Old Members.

Therefore, if those who are unable to attend, would you kindly consider a donation, of any amount? It would be greatly appreciated and would help to maintain the tradition of the current members of the Club attending as the guests of those who have preceded them. Those attending are also welcome to donate!


To buy your ticket or to donate, please use the online form below. Please note: if you are a current member of UCBC please sign-up for the Lunch via the UCBC Committee and not via this form.


Cancellations can be accepted up to seven days before the event. Please email rsvp@univ.ox.ac.uk

Dress Code

For your guidance the dress code at Leander is defined as “smart casual”. Gentlemen are invited to wear a jacket and tie (blazers, particularly College blazers are ideal). Smart jeans are acceptable but not sports-wear or trainers please. Trousers for ladies are fine.

Pre-lunch drinks will be at 12.30 for 1pm Lunch, and the proceedings should be finished by 3pm. There is a car park at Leander. Just drive up to the right-hand barrier and announce who you are.

We do hope that you will be able to join us.
