On Saturday 18 March, we marked the 20-year anniversary of the first Adam de Brome Society lunch, and celebrated society members who contribute to College by remembering Oriel in their will.
We were delighted to welcome back 100 members of the Adam de Brome Society and their guests at the annual event held in College. Prior to lunch, as well as updates from the Director of Development, and the Treasurer, guests were treated to a fascinating lecture from Orielensis Tony Tucker (1964, History) on the life and work of Sir Christopher Wren. Tony is a qualified City Guide and former Chairman of the City of London Guide Lecturers Association. He leads regular guided walks for the City of London Corporation, the Friends of the City Churches and numerous private groups.
The Adam de Brome lunches started in 2003 by then Adam de Brome Fellow Robin Harland (1952, English) as a means to celebrate those who had generously stated their intention to leave a gift to Oriel in their Will. Current Adam de Brome Fellow John Cook (1965, History) thanked Robin and the two other former Adam de Brome Fellows Peter Collett (1952, Classics) and John Albert (1956, History) for all their hard work in his speech after lunch.
