On this occasion we are unable to offer rowing to Clare Boat Club members due to your Reunion Dinner falling on the Henley Royal Regatta weekend. However, we warmly invite you all to join us for this year’s Clare Gala Day taking place in College on Saturday 2nd July.  Gala Day is a free event and is suitable for all ages, so please do bring the whole family! Gala Day is a great opportunity to spend the day in Clare, together with your family and friends. This year we have created a programme of fascinating talks, interactive sessions, beautiful music and much more. There is certainly something for everyone. A full programme of the day's activities will be available on our website. (Please note that children are to be supervised by their parents or carers at all times throughout the day.) An email will be sent out to all alumni soon with further details.
