Last year saw Keggfest’s triumphant return after a few year’s post-uni hiatus. This year’s successful continuation finds it firmly entrenching itself once more in the annual calendar. We had a great turn-out despite battling a last-minute date-change and signalling problems between Cambridge and London which left some guests stranded literally on the wrong side of the tracks.
The freely flowing chocolate and wine combination was as successful a formula as ever, while other activities including the traditional keggstacking as well as chocolate bunny mutilation, led by Angie wielding a hot knife like a crazed surgeon. I think it can be said that Irina was less than impressed.
As Keggfest continues to expand beyond its initial confines in Downing (Keggfest’s name is derived from K-Bar, the bar in my room, situated in K staircase in the first and third years) we had several new “firsts”. Since I share a flat with her, I had always expected Anna to be the first attendee from the Other Place. As she missed last year’s and was late this year, she was surprisingly beaten to that honour by Fifi who is now PhD-ing there. Scott was our first transatlantic guest, so there’s no excuse for those of you Stateside not to make it next year when we throw open wider invitations! Finally, a well-deserved shout-out to Dave who came the greatest distance on the day, travelling over from Northern Ireland after impulse-buying a flight at Tom and Lyds’ wedding the weekend before (yes, there will be photos soon…).
Here’s a handful of photos for those who missed out.
