The Hawks' Club Cambridge

History of the Dinner

The first London Dinner was organised in July 1936 by John Tallent (Clare 1929-32, Hawks, Rugby), a former President of the English Rugby Union. Prior to that, in the early 1930’s, the Club used to hold a Ball in London on the third day of the Varsity Cricket Match – “in the days when a first class dance band cost 40 guineas and tickets were 17 shillings and sixpence”! However, numbers began to dwindle, and it was decided to experiment with a “stag” Dinner instead. The first was held at the Grosvenor House, when 120 members attended, including the late Duke of Gloucester. The Guest of Honour was the great English actor, Aubrey Smith, who introduced cricket to Hollywood.
In about 1954, the venue was changed to the Savoy, and the date to the eve of the Varsity Rugby match. Only twice since has the venue been other than at the Savoy, one of those occasions being in 1974, the Club’s centenary year, when the Dinner was held in the Guildhall to accommodate the 600 members who attended. The move to the Savoy produced a marked improvement in attendance figures, which in recent years have averaged around 300.

The London Dinner is organised by a committee of some 15 graduate Hawks, covering all age groups – as well as representatives from Cambridge in the form of the current President and a senior member, generally one of the Club Trustees. In practice, most of the work falls on the shoulders of the Secretary of this committee – John Tallent’s successors in this role have included Clive Russell Vick (Jesus 1941, Cricket & Hockey),

The "CAF Thiepval Project" was the working title of the British end of the Franco-British partnership that has created a visitor centre at Thiepval.

Phillip Russell Vick landscape architect of enplan (Tunbridge Wells) generously prepared plans and greatly assisted on the landscaping that has so successfully blended the French architects' superb design into the countryside surrounding the Lutyens memorial.

The public inquiry into the proposed SnOasis indoor snow centre development in Suffolk started last week.

Philip Russell-Vick, a witness appearing on behalf of SnOasis developers Onslow Suffolk told the inquiry that the ski-slope would be a “highly unusual, perhaps unique, structure”.

Drifting into the flowery language of architects he claimed that “its simple angled form is a clear expression of the building's function as an artificial skiing facility.”
