Former students, faculty, employees, ministry, and friends – all who shared the experience of Ambassador College, Bricket Wood – we invite you to come celebrate the lasting friendships and warm memories of our time spent together.
In Bricket Wood—not just the natural choice, but confirmed as your definite preference by our earlier survey. And following careful research, we’ve come up with an equally clear winner for the venue: The Watford Hilton! Situated just up the tracks from our former campus, it is an ideal location for all the reunion activities and in easy reach of airports, London and other points of interest.
Check-in Sunday May 18, 2014 through Check-out Thursday (a.m.) May 22, 2014.
In answer to your question, “What will this cost?” we are very pleased to announce that we’ve locked in a special room rate of only £67.50 per night. That’s $106 US at current exchange rates, and includes all taxes and full English buffet breakfast! And, you can even use this negotiated rate if you want to come earlier or extend your stay after your reunion.
We are planning two (mouthwatering, we might add) meals for all of us to enjoy together, one of which is the Gala Night. These repasts will be provided at very reasonable prices and feature some traditional English delights on the menus. There will also be a registration fee to cover sundry expenses. Whatever else you spend at your reunion is up to you. Full details on your Reunion schedule, meals, registration fee, etc. will be announced at a later date.
Sign-up is easy. Please do NOT call the hotel direct, but phone the central reservation number (see below) to reserve your room. Just tell them that you want to book at the Watford Hilton, Elton Way, England and quote GAMBA to get the special rate. That’s it!!
Booking this rate online is not available at the moment – will let you know when it is. Also, we ask that you NOT book through Expedia or any of those other means – if you do, the hotel will not know that you are part of our group and it will make our planning more difficult. It is highly unlikely that you would find a better rate through those means anyway as the rate we have secured includes the taxes, fees, full English breakfast and is a terrific deal!
No need to wait—Reserve now! The sooner the better! Even without flights booked, if you have the slightest inkling that you might attend, please DO go ahead and book at the hotel! This will help with all the planning and keeping the number of rooms that have been offered to us at the very special reunion rate. There is no risk to you – if you have to cancel you can do so right up until 4 pm of the first day of your arrival–at no charge.

Because it’s been 40 years or more since your last pint at The Gate and we’re all long overdue for a toast shared with pals. Or, because your memories are still vivid of the train leaving Watford station for Bricket Wood, where the swans near Lakeside were calling. Or maybe because the scent of buds bursting into flower on a fine spring afternoon in the rose garden still lingers. We can’t wait to hear your reason to head to England for a most memorable round of banqueting, dancing, touring and reminiscing about our college days—together again!
