The James Caird boat at Dulwich College

To celebrate the Society's 60th anniversary, the members of the Dulwich Society Executive Committee have great pleasure in inviting you to drinks and canapes at the James Caird Hall, Dulwich College, on Thursday 13 July 2023 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Calista Lucy, Keeper of the Archives at Dulwich College, will guide us around the James Caird, a 23 foot whaler, and tell the astonishing story of when the Polar explorer and Dulwich College alumnus Sir Ernest Shackleton and five companions made an epic open boat voyage of 800 miles from Elephant Island to South Georgia during the Antarctic winter of 1916. Tickets are £20 and are available via Eventbrite. We look forward to seeing you there.
