Day Three will visit the American sector, including Omaha Beach and the St Laurent US cemetery.

Day Four includes a tour of Maison des Calvados Boulard and a visit to a wine merchant in Ardres, en route to the Eurotunnel terminal in Calais for the return to Eastbourne, arriving back at 9pm.

The cost depends upon the number of travellers in the group but will be between £579 and £644 per person, sharing in double or twin rooms. The single room supplement is £85 per person for the tour.

The price includes all coach travel, Channel crossings, overnight cabins on the ferry, professional guide, entry to museums and sites, two nights' bed and breakfast accommodation, and all lunches and evening meals (except for the evening meal on the ferry crossing on day one).

To secure the best deal we need an early commitment from those intending to travel as we have to pay an initial deposit in July. If you are interested in going please let Lulu Brown know by Friday 21 July. There is no money required at this stage - just a commitment that you can go so that we can total the numbers in the group.

Eastbournian Society reunion for Old Eastbournians Saturday 8 September 2018
Eastbourne College
 

The annual OE reunion takes place on Saturday 8 September, culminating in an evening meal. This year the reunion dinner will be the inaugural one in the new Dining Hall in the Project 150 development, as we approach the end of our 2017-18 150th anniversary year.

Rather than restricting attendance to a particular cohort, the 2018 reunion will be open to Old Eastbournians of all eras, as well as former members of staff. Spouses and partners are welcome to join us and you can come to as many or as few of the day's events as you wish. There is no charge for any part of the day.

Full details of the day, including information about how to book, will be updated on this page in due course.
