It is now the practice of the MCR to accompany each MCR guest dinner with a short oration about an interesting alumnus of the MCR.
For the Trinity Term 2011 dinner the subject spoken of was Pixley ka Isaka Seme, proposed by Roger Deane.
The oration, given by Edward Owen, is here.
If there is any individual you would like to speak about at future dinners, let us know! All efforts are welcomed.
If you don’t know what the hell that is… well, you need to find out asap basically, and stop doing so much work!

(There’s also loads of people, food, drink, action, excitement plus maxing and relaxing – though no b’ball outside of the school sadly)
Imagine, if you will, this quintessential English scene:
The sun is shining upon the lush, green grass. The groundsman’s thrumming mower is chased by his obedient, if hapless and yappy dog. Deck-chairs adorn the shade of the great oak, their occupants clapping to the sound of leather on willow. They sup tea and nibble on cake as they admire the ladies and gents dressed all in white, scattered about the field playing out the ritual that is so much part of an English summer: a gentle game of cricket.
