We are delighted to be hosting an exclusive event in the presence of His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO at Wellington College.

In his role as Trustee and Chair of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE), His Royal Highness is undertaking a unique initiative this year.  He has pledged to play every Real Tennis Court in the world during 2018 to promote awareness of the work the DofE does in transforming young lives.   As you may know, Wellington is one of only a handful of schools in the country to own a Real Tennis Court. Wellington is also a centre for Bronze, Silver and and Gold DofE Awards.

We would be delighted if you could join us for this very special event on Thursday 6th September 2018. The evening will begin with a champagne reception at 18.45, followed by dinner with His Royal Highness in the Waterloo Hall.
