Abingdon School Boat Club and the Friends of Abingdon School Boat Club (FASBC) would like to invite all rowers and their parents to attend the 27th Annual Rowing Dinner on Saturday 17th March.
Drinks Reception in The Charles Maude Room from 7pm followed by a three course dinner at 7:45pm. There will be a cash bar and a raffle to name a boat.
Dress: Black Tie or Regatta Dress.
Our guest speaker this year is Matthew Rossiter, OA 2007. Matt was Junior World Champion in 2007, and was selected for the Great Britain Senior Team in 2017 making the top boat - the Coxless Four - for the Senior World Championships, and won a bronze medal.
This is always a popular event so we encourage you to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Bring the whole family to a fun-filled few hours of hands-on science activities, demonstrations and exhibits in the Yang Science Centre at Abingdon School. Whether you drop in for half an hour or stay right through, there will be plenty to excite and interest all ages at this event. Organisations such as Science Oxford, The Curiosity Box, Bright Sparks and the Abingdon Science Partnership will be doing their best to get everyone involved in doing science for themselves.
This year there is no need to book for this event - just turn up!
Visitors should enter the Yang Science Centre via the main entrance through the Abingdon School coach park on Faringdon Road. Parking will be very limited at this venue.

Tickets for the dinner are £35 per parent and £25 per player, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. This event always sells out quickly, so we encourage you to apply early through the school box office.
