The Caffinites Reunion 2017
Save the Date – Saturday 13 May 2017
On Saturday 13 May 2017, the current Housemaster of Caffinites, Mr Colin Fordyce and his wife Naomi are hosting a lunch to celebrate the 140th anniversary of The Caffinites. The event is free. We hope you and many other Old Caffinites will want to attend. If you are in contact with any of your former housemates please do pass on this invitation to them. The Caffinites will be open from noon until 3 pm with a welcome by the Headmaster at 12.45pm. Lunch will be served at 1 pm.
Built in 1847, the Second Master’s house was renamed in 1877 as The Caffinites in honour of former Second Master, Rev. Benjamin Caffin. In 1933 the House moved into its present accommodation. Old Caffinites went on to become Ferens House. It is now postgraduate accommodation for the University of Durham.
