Isabelle de Hennin,


The Cambridge Society warmly invites you to a Christmas Party for a festive celebration with mince pies and mulled wine, on the 120th anniversary of the first successful sustained flight in an aeroplane. On this day in 1903 near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright accomplished this feat in an aeroplane—Orville first, gliding 36.6 metres through the air in 12 seconds.

Isabelle (Trinity) and François de Hennin have kindly offered to welcome us in their home for this Christmas gathering. From 3 pm onwards the mince pies will be warm and the candles lit. Musical entertainment is in preparation.

Mince pies will be  sourced from the UK – therefore, if you are attending, please do let us know by signing-up as below so that we can plan the catering.

The event is free to paid-up members and current Cambridge students (ie Student Members). Non-paid-up members might be interested in joining the Society (paying membership after September includes 2024 membership). See website or newsletter for details.

To sign up please send use this link before 14th December (places are limited)

We look forward to welcoming you to share a Christmas  moment with us on the 17th December.

Parking is easy nearby. The apartment block will have multiple internal signposts so keep your eyes open to go to the 8th floor and find the correct flat. Otherwise sniff for mulled wine and mince pies!
