600th Anniversary Family Picnic & Garden Party

Saturday 1st July 2023

We’d like to invite our whole RLS family (past and present) to join us at our 600th Anniversary Family Picnic & Garden Party on Saturday 1st July
We have a number of treats in store whilst you relax with family and friends on the front lawns of the Royal Latin School on a sunny afternoon:
🎷Live music from renowned jazz band (and former Latin), Tad Newton & Jazz Friends
🎶 Live music from current RLS students
🍰 Afternoon Tea boxes from Michelin-star-trained, Sophie, at Pure Patisserie
🍔 Tantalising Hot Food Vans
📸 A 600th Anniversary Photobooth
😃 600th Anniversary activities
🍹 Delicious drinks & bar with special surprises (for adults!)
NB. We hope to be able to welcome everyone who wants to join us but tickets will be limited to enable us to run the event safely.

We hope you can join us!

The afternoon promises to be a special afternoon of music, entertainment, friendship, food and fond memories on the front lawns of the Royal Latin School – hopefully in the sunshine!

This will be our biggest event, and one of the pinnacle moments in the 600th Anniversary celebrations calendar. 

There will be plenty of photo opportunities, and special 600th anniversary activities. 

Watch this space for confirmation of music and food offerings!

Food Vans confirmed:

A range of hot food vendors will be joining us (endorsed by our students) offering delicious savoury food offerings from freshly-baked pizzas, to authentic curries and noodles, to tantalising burgers and toasties. Vegans and vegetarian options included.

Afternoon Tea Boxes confirmed:

We are delighted to be able to offer pre-ordered Afternoon Tea boxes from Buckingham-based, Michelin-trained chef, Sophie, at Pure Patisserie.

Details on how to order will be available here soon.

We're looking for a Headline Sponsor

to take centre stage at this pinnacle event in our events calendar - could you help?

To help us with our aim to provide the most entertaining afternoon possible, whilst keeping ticket prices as low as possible, we are looking for a headline sponsor for the 600th Anniversary Family Picnic & Garden Party. 

* This will be an event attended by over 500 of the RLS community, from Buckingham, Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire, and further afield. 

* We will be promoting the event to over 4,000 current and Old Latins via email, social media and on our website. 

* There will also be opportunities to have a physical presence at the event if desired. 

If you know a local business whose values align with ours, who would like to play a part in supporting this special year in our school’s history, and would benefit from visibility amongst our school community, please email:
