Overflowing Gardens

Our largest-ever event, under glorious skies

Our 2019 Garden Party unfolded at the British High Commission under gloriously sunny skies, and even warmer company.

In addition to our own members, we were delighted to welcome alumni from twenty-six additional British universities.  With more than two-hundred guests, this easily surpassed last year’s Garden Party to become our largest-ever event.

In addressing the gathering, our President, David Sacks, described Oxford’s extraordinary ascendancy in British public life, and questioned whether the effects have been entirely happy.

Once again, we thank High Commissioner Susan Jane le Jeune d’Allegeershecque and her staff for their hospitality in opening Earnscliffe’s gardens to us, and making it possible for so many of us to come together.

  1. Oxford was the one and only university I would like to have attended. Unfortunately , for various reasons, I never had the opportunity to apply. I probably would not have qualified anyway.
