Marquee – from 12.30pm until 6.00pm, Ditton Corner

GCBC runs a Marquee on Ditton Corner on the River Cam every year on the last day of May Bumps and you are warmly invited to cheer our boats along in the hope that our Blades flag will wend its way back to the Boat House after an exciting week of bumping action. Food and beverages will be served.

Early-bird tickets for the marquee will cost £12 and include four items (up to two from the BBQ). Tickets on the day will cost £15, but individual items will also be available for sale. If you are would like to purchase a ticket please email Limeng at, payment can be made by bank transfer to the account below. Please use the reference: MarqueeSURNAME.

Boat Club Dinner – from 7.00pm, Girton College

In the evening GCBC would like to invite you to the Boat Club Dinner (more fondly remembered as BCD) starting with a wine reception at 7.30pm in the Stanley Library and followed by a three-course meal. This invitation extends to all rowers, and we are particularly keen to reunite crews of 1978, 1988, 1998 and 2008.

At £50 a ticket, we very much hope you will take up the opportunity to join us and make merry with your crew mates at BCD once more. Alternatively, we invite you to join The Infidel Boat Club (TIBC) for Girton alumni (with a membership fee of £25 per year) and pay the Infidel ticket price of £45.

To book please email Limeng at with your name (and the name of your guest) any dietary requirements, your crew and year, before the 2 June 2018. Payment can be made by bank transfer to the account below. Please use the reference: BCD-SURNAME.

Do feel free to circulate this information to any crew mates that may not have received our invitation, our crew lists may be incomplete.
