Quatercentennial Black & Blue Ball

Saturday 11 May will see the Dulwich College Quatercentenary Black and Blue Ball at Dulwich College, an opportunity to celebrate 400 years in style with current and past parents, Old Alleynians and staff. This is a fundraising event for the Dulwich College Bursary Fund, supported by the Friends of Dulwich College and the Alleyn Club.


The Silent Auction is now live! Visit the auction site here.

Please take the time to peruse the wide variety of exciting auction lots and register to make some bids. Bidding will be open to everyone in the lead up to the event until 2pm on Saturday 11 May. After this time, it will only be open for bidding by those attending on the night, with the silent auction closing towards the end of the evening.

If you will not be attending the event, but are interested in a Silent or Live Auction lot, we encourage you to place an absent bid with us by 4pm on Thursday 9 May. Please contact Kirsty Murdoch in the Development Office on 020 8299 8446 or development@dulwich.org.uk

Our huge thanks to all those who have very kindly donated some incredible items to the auction.

Information for attendees

We look forward to welcoming over 800 guests on 11 May for an evening of celebration in support of our bursaries at the College. There will be plenty of opportunities to support the Bursary Fund, through a diamond raffle, silent and live auctions, table games, a fun-money casino and much more. We advise bringing cash where possible for these, in addition to making purchases of drinks at the cash bar.
