CAOKS Annual Dinner

Our annual Dinner for CAOKS, Members and Supporters

Booking for the 151st Annual Dinner on Saturday 1st April 2017 opens on 1st November 2016.

We are delighted once again to be returning to the Town Hall in Chester hoping to repeat the success of the 150th earlier this year when 159 attended. There will be the usual toasts, the presentation of the Old Kings Scholars Exhibition to the 2016 recipient speeches to the ‘The School and the “The Association” and all rounded off by this year’s President Alan Vallance

The drinks reception. in the magnificent Council Chamber, will start at 6.30pm, after which dinner will be taken in the Assembly Room from 7.30pm, with carriages from 11.00pm

Early booking ticket prices for Members and Guests are £41.25 and for Student Members £31.25 – if booked by 31st January 2017. Standard prices after that are £47.25 and £39.75 respectively. Prices include a complimentary glass of wine on arrival and a 3 course dinner including coffee. Wine may be pre-ordered at the discounted price shown or bought on the evening at the caterers standard price. As well as the early booking discount there are group discounts available for 8 or more (but not both combined!)

After the launch in 2015 of an initiative to raise funds for the Exhibition Fund and Baty Voluntary Award we will once again be running a short auction and the very popular ‘stand up bingo’.

Your support on the evening is very much appreciated, and if anyone would like to sponsor the drinks reception, donate an auction prize or give a bottle of something for the bingo we would be most grateful
