Garden Party Returns - rain fails to defeat it!

Date Published: 08.07.2022

On Saturday 2 July, our Benefactors' Garden Party returned for the first time since the pandemic.

Undaunted by the British Summer doing what it does best, valued alumni and friends who have generously supported the College were welcomed back to its gardens.

The College extended its gratitude by serving Pimms, strawberries, scones and sandwiches aplenty, plus garden games to keep the kids entertained. A few adults even put up their hoods to give badminton a go.

Warden Robert Hannigan comments,

“It is great to be able to share some of the College’s ambitious plans for the future. Against a difficult global and national backdrop, at Wadham we are pressing forward with making Oxford education available to the best students from all backgrounds; we are breaking new ground in world-leading research; and we are securing the future of the unique tutorial teaching system in Oxford which rigorously challenges students to be intellectually curious and adventurous.”
