Saturday night saw 180 alumni, guests & students enjoy an evening celebrating ULBC’s results in 2018 and our successes in 1968, ’78, ’88, ’98 and ’08.

Senate House again played host to the ULBC Annual Dinner. Our first guest speaker was Pat Wright, a member of the 1968 UL Grand winning crew and British Olympic eight. Pat shared his special stories & experiences from the Tideway to Henley and on to the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games. In celebration of the University of London being the first university in the UK to accept female students 150 years ago this year, our second speaker was three-time Olympian and Olympic Silver medal winner, Jess Eddie. Both Pat and Jess spoke on the impact UL had on them and the opportunities being part of the club provided them with.
