Annual Appeal

Unlike a major campaign, the Annual Appeal retains its place in the College calendar because it directly supports the school in a different way. Every donation allows individual members of the College community to help with a range of smaller projects that fulfil an urgent need, or support an initiative to inspire, excite and challenge the boys.

The boys will have a better learning experience and their lives will be enhanced by every gift, large or small. The Christ's College community has always displayed strong philanthropic support and we are indebted to such benefactors. Your gift is most appreciated and your place in the College family defined by your support.

Help us restore the Dining Hall Gallery

Minstrel Gallery EDIT

What is the Dining Hall Gallery?

High up at the southern end of the Dining Hall is the beautiful and unique gallery, commonly known in architectural terms as a Minstrels’ Gallery.

In its day, the gallery was used by House tutors and matrons to eat their meals, and as a space to host special events.

With your help we plan to restore this important part of College history and bring it back to a functioning dining space … as well as a place for musicians to play and other events to occur, while functions are held below in the Dining Hall.
