Each year The Old Hodgsonites Association holds an annual dinner
For 2016 the 53rd OHA Annual Meeting and Dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday, 15 September 2016 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. The price is £82.50 per head (£45 per head for monitors of the House or OHs under the age of 25 years).
For 2015 the Annual Dinner was on Tuesday15 September at Charterhouse, Sutton’s Hospital in the City. To book or learn more see this page:
In 2014 dinner was held on 16th September at the Carlton Club. Special guest was new headmaster Richard Pleming.
Over the years the Dinner has been held in and around Clubland in London, the last few at The National Liberal Club at 1 Whitehall Place and or The Carlton Club in St James.
Our dinners are a truly Hodgsonites affair encompassing present monitors of the House, musicians, House tutors and the Housemaster as well as any member of the OHA.
The Dinner is preceded by our AGM at which we remember OHs who have died during the previous year and the finances of the Association are presented. Elections of officers are made, the date and location of the next dinner is fixed and any other business of common interest to the Association is presented.
Over the last few years our after-dinner speaker has spoken on a topic related to a Carthusian theme. This has included talks about ‘Charterhouse Museum’, ’Robert Graves’, ‘Thomas Sutton and the founding statutes of Charterhouse’, ‘Music and Charterhouse’ and from Peter Nathan (’49) on the subject of the great cricketer: ‘Peter May, Sportsman and Friend’. I would encourage anyone who has not seen contemporaries for a while to consider coming along or getting a group together and join us on the next occasion.
