Join us at Christ’s Hospital for Old Blues’ Day 2019 – a free open day for all Old Blues and their families. Download the programme for the day here, and for further information and to register to come along visit the CHOBA website.

This year we have introduced some new features for the day such as the Old Blues Market, Pupil Buskers and a ‘Ramble beyond the ring fence’, as well as welcoming back some of our regular features like the Old Blues Photobooth, Chapel service and tours of the Boarding Houses, and of course the CH Museum will be hosting lots of activities.

Registering your interest in attending

Whilst it is not compulsory to register in advance of the day, it does help us with organisation, staffing and security if we have an idea of how many people will be on site. So if possible please register your intention to attend online up until the 17 May or alternatively you can print a booking form and return it to the CHOBA office before 13 May.


Tickets for a sandwich lunch in the Wakefield Centre are available in advance of the day and can be booked during the registration process. Capacity is limited and tickets will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, we will be unable to cater for those who have not booked in advance. Other options for food on the day include light snacks and sandwiches available from the Hertford Centre cafe, and, new for this year, we will be welcoming the Villagio Wood-fired mobile pizzeria on site for hot take-away food.
