International Dinner 19th May 2012 - SOLD OUT
The Spring International Dinner will be held on the 19th May
2012 in the prestigious and beautiful surroundings of Oriel College in the City
of Oxford. Dinner will be served in the College Dining Hall which has a
traditional vaulted ceiling and many beautiful stained glass windows. Oriel College
was founded by Edward 11 in 1326. Amongst its many Alumni, Oriel College can
list Cecil Rhodes, Sir Walter Raleigh, Beau Brummel, Gilbert White and Nobel prize
winners Alexander Todd and James Meade. Knowing that many members will be
fascinated by the College architecture and history, we have arranged for a
brief 30 minute guided tour of the College which promises to be fascinating.
The tour will be immediately prior to our traditional Champagne Taittinger

Due to the time of year coinciding with the wedding season
it seems that Hotels with sufficient available rooms are extremely hard to
source in the Oxford area. However, we are holding a total of 19 rooms at two
of the Four Pillars Hotel group in Oxford. We have rooms on hold at the Oxford Spires (01865
324324) and Oxford Thames (01865 334 444). Members should book direct with the
Hotel mentioning the Aston Martin Owners Club. If enough interest in shown in
these rooms it is likely that we will arrange a coach to transfer members from
the Hotels to the event. If so, a small additional charge will be requested to
cover the cost of the coaches.
Members should note that there is NO onsite parking
available at the college itself as Oxford has a reputation for being somewhat
"unfriendly" towards the Motor car - yes, even Aston Martins! However there are Car Parks within a few minutes walk from the College. Please click on the following link for further information.
