Classical Society Dinner

Classical Society Dinner

On Thursday evening, January 14th the Classical Society held a dinner to celebrate all things classical, but particularly to bring together those boys studying Greek at the College.

Guests of honour were Hamish Aird (now in his 50th year since arriving to teach Classics at Radley, and pictured above showing off a fragment of Minoan pottery) and Harry Constant (also pictured above left), late of B Social and freshly in possession of a place to read Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at St John's, Oxford. Finn Salter, late of D, who has also gained a place on the same course, was unfortunately unable to attend. 

A Greek-themed meal was enlivened with several archaeological and poetical interludes (Johnny Dewhurst is pictured below reading aloud from Plato's Symposium), and finished with a rousing rendition of 'What shall we do with a drunken sailor?', in ancient Greek, led by PWG.
