The 54th Old Hodgsonites Annual Meeting and Dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday, 2nd November 2017 at the Charterhouse, Sutton’s Hospital, Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6AN, commencing with a drinks reception in the Old Library from 7:00 pm, with the AGM itself at 7:30 pm and dinner immediately afterwards. The evening will finish at 10:30 pm sharp, to minimise the disturbance to the Brothers.

We are also exploring the idea of having a slightly less formal and lower cost venue maybe alternating the types of events over the years between. Feedback welcome.
