This is a reminder that the documentary film Paris or the Bush: The Story of the Cods about the Australian crew that went to compete at the 1924 Paris Olympics will be shown at Leander Club on Friday 24 February. The event starts with a two-course supper at 7 p.m., which will be followed by the film. Running time for the film is about two hours.

Cost: £15 per person, payable in advance.

To book: Contact the Leander Club office on 01491 575782 or email events@leander.co.uk

This is the second film evening organised by Leander. In December 2016, the club arranged a viewing of the documentary film The Boys of ’36.

On 22 March, there will be a third supper and film evening. To mark the 30th anniversary of the 1987 Oxford–Cambridge Boat Race, Leander will show the film True Blue. Special guest this evening is Donald Macdonald, president of OUBC in 1986/87, who will provide insights into the dramatic events before, during and after the ‘rebellion’, as he was in the centre of the controversy.
