Friday 20 April to Saturday 21 April, 2018: Spirit of '56 Weekend

31 August 2018

After the success of the Ladies Plate 60th Anniversary Weekend in 2016, the members of the 1956 crew organised a repeat for 2018. Boaties past and present joined the crew to celebrate all that the Boat Club has achieved over the last 60 years and to look to the future of rowing at Peterhouse.

It was a weekend of celebration; a private dinner for the '56 crew on Friday, was followed by a dinner in Hall for all members on the Saturday and the weekend was rounded off with the launch of the second new scull, 'The Martin Bartlett', purchased with funds from the 2017 Scull Appeal.

The weekend also saw the launch of a new fundraising body: The 1828 Committee. This new Committee, consisting of alumni and current members of the Peterhouse Boat Club, will be working closely with the Development Office to advise on the changes needed to the Peterhouse Boat House over the next few years. More details about this fundraising initiative will be available in Michaelmas term.
