Our 2018 programme of events is not quite finalised so at the moment we can only give you a taster of what’s to come, but there are a few dates for your diary:

After the success of our Roman evening we are planning two more food themed evenings. 


On Thursday 8th February there will be an evening of TUSCAN DINING. 

This will be in conjunction with Katie Caldesi, whose family run two Italian restaurants in London and Maidenhead.  This will be much more than just an Italian meal, there will be lots of explanations about the food and the cooking methods and of course you will be able to ask questions.


On Friday 13th April  Jill Eyers  will be inviting you to DINE LIKE A TUDOR. 

Those of you who attended the hugely entertaining Roman evening will know that Jill has written a book about Food Down the Ages and this is another chapter from the book.  Once again we will be offering you authentic dishes of the period and the evening may include a few surprises.  Jill’s book has now been published and we have copies available from the office for £15.50.   We also have a few copies of her book on the Romans in Hambleden now just £5.


On Friday 17th August the disaster response team Rapid UK will be talking about their work around the world and setting up a base camp in our grounds, but rest assured the meal will not comprise basic rations.


More supper talks are in the pipeline as well as a quiz;  we will give you the details once dates have been finalised.



St. Katharine’s Apple juice is now on sale in the front hall, £3 per bottle or two for £5, but our crop wasn’t very plentiful this year so stocks are limited and likely to run out quite soon – so get in quick if you want some.




We look forward to seeing you soon at St. Katharine’s!
