Dear Rowers and Old Blades,

Pegasus Boat Club’s 2019 London Dinner will be held on Saturday 16th November 2019, in a private room at Brasserie Blanc, Tower of London. Pre-dinner drinks will be held in the adjacent All Bar One from 18:30, with the three-course dinner in the Brasserie at 19:30.

Dress code: smart, with RCBC colours encouraged.  

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Dinner tickets including a half bottle of wine are £45.00, dinner tickets without wine are £33.75. You are welcome to bring a guest. Tickets will be allocated on a first to book basis.

Please book using the online booking form, selecting your ticket with or without wine, your Starter, Main course and Dessert. Please indicate any special dietary requirements for each person booked. It will be possible for individuals to purchase additional or different drinks from the house wine at their own cost on the evening.

Bookings will close on Tuesday 5th November, sooner if fully booked earlier. Book early to avoid disappointment!

If you would like to make a gift to support the Robinson College Boat Club via the Pegasus Boat Club Fund, a single gift may be added to your dinner booking on the online booking form.  If you are not already making a regular gift and would like to set up a monthly, quarterly or annual gift, this can be done on-line (select "Pegasus Boat Club" in the fund drop-down list). All gifts are gratefully received and make a very real difference to the resources and facilities available to current and future Robinson rowers.
