Hughes Hall Boat Club Annual Alumni Day

Hughes Hall Boat Club would like to extend a warm invite to all former rowers to join our annual Alumni Day, taking place this year on the 27th of May.

We would love you to join us for the day regardless of your levels of rowing experience over the last few years. We plan to provide a side-by-side race, as well as the opportunity for casual paddling, so that everyone can participate as they wish. Non-rowers and guests are welcome to join spectators on Ditton Meadows, where refreshments will be provided. After the outings, we will christen our new Women’s VIII.

Following our afternoon on the river, we invite you to join us for our Alumni Dinner at the Hughes Hall dining hall, which will be followed by a drinks reception, speeches and raffle. The timings for the day are as follows:


  • 2pm – Rowers meet at Emmanuel College Boat House

  • 4pm – Boat Christening ceremony
  • 7pm – Drinks reception, Peter Richards Room, Hughes Hall
