Don your best top hat or bonnet for a jolly evening of ye olde merrymaking and fundraising in aid of CPotential on Wednesday 27 February 2019.

Master John Martin (our ex-Chair of Trustees) invites you to take part in the Swearing on the Horns, an ancient and unusual Highgate tradition.

For a very modest ‘initiation fee’ (donation), you can partake in the ceremony, which involves making an historic – not altogether binding – oath on the Horns. This then entitles you to various quaint privileges and a wonderful certificate showing you are now a ‘Freeman of Highgate’.

John says: “I won’t reveal more now – other than you won’t have seen anything like it, it’s great fun and all for a fantastic cause.”

There’ll also be a raffle and other Victorian-themed frolics all in the warm historic ambience of The Wrestlers Pub, 98 North Road, London N6 4AA.
