The Stewards warmly invite you to the annual Founder's Day Dinner to be held on Wednesday 5 December at The Charterhouse, London.

This is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with fellow Old Carthusians over a sumptuous fine dining experience set in a location second to none for its beauty and history. 
The event starts at 6pm when all are invited to Choral Evensong for the annual service with music provided by the School's Chamber Choir. Following this a champagne reception will be held in the Great Chamber from 6.45pm and guests will be asked to take their seats in the Great Hall by 7.30pm.


We are delighted to share the menu for the event being:
Starter: Peri peri prawns on gem lettuce with green mango slaw and pineapple crisp
Mains: Charterhouse Surf and Turf with fillet of beef, lobster tail, crab and potato puree, tender stem and lemon and tarragon sauce
Dessert: Sutton's Mess 
To finish: Cheese platters
A vegetarian option is also available (please contact [email protected] for more details).  


We are pleased to announce that our guest speaker will be Dr Alex Peterken, Headmaster, and our guest preacher will be Reverend Richard Lloyd.

Tickets are £80 per person with concession tickets for those under 30 years as at 5 December 2018, being £50 per person. Dress is black tie.
