The Leavers' Dinner takes place on the lawns outside the dining room at Leckhampton, or in the Dining Hall if the weather is bad. The dinner will commence at 7.30pm. 

Dinner cost will be £15.50 for KFC payers and price plus 30% for non KFC and guests.

80 places are available for the meal and the sign-ups will close on Wednesday, 18th June at noon.

Here is the menu:

They will be open at 9am on Saturday 7th of June for the Leavers: people doing a one-year course (or part-time equivalent), people in their last year of PhD, medics in their last year.
