Founder's Day Dinner

Following renewed government guidance in the past few days regarding the need for additional Covid precautions we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year's Founder's Day Dinner.

Apologies for this disappointment. We look forward to bringing everyone together for next year's Founder's Day Dinner.



The Stewards warmly invite you to the annual Founder's Day Dinner to be held on Wednesday 8 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 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 pleased to confirm the menu for the Founder's Day Dinner as:

Beetroot cured salmon, citrus crème fraîche
Sweet and sour dill

Lamb, gentleman’s relish, roast Ratte potato, sweetcorn purée
Charred sweetheart cabbage

Dark chocolate ganache, orange, toasted hazelnut
Whipped crème fraîche, sage


Tickets are £100 per person with concession tickets for those under 25 years as at 8 December 2021, being £75 per person. Dress is black tie.

Please note that those eligible to dine are Old Carthusians, members of the Governing Body, or members of the staff of Sutton's Hospital or of Brooke Hall. Seating will be at the discretion of the Stewards although we will do our best to meet all seating preferences. Please note car parking is not available in the precincts of The Charterhouse and smoking is not permitted anywhere on site. 

The booking form can be found below and the programme above. Places will not be confirmed until payment has been received. 

We very much hope that we will be able to welcome as many of you as possible to this fabulous dinner.
