Harvard 3


As we build up to Sedbergh’s 500th year, the Old Sedberghian Club are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a dinner at the Harvard Club of New York City on Thursday 30th May 2024.

This is a ‘State Visit’. Unfortunately, the Prime Minister of Great Britain can’t make it due to other commitments, but the Headmaster, Dan Harrison and his wife, Cathy, will be leading our entourage from the Cumbrian fells to the Big Apple. Accompanying them will be representatives of the School and the OS Club.

We hope to meet up with as many of our old friends as possible and to this end we have arranged a formal dinner at the Harvard Club of New York City of which the details are below.
