Oxford and Cambridge Societies in Paris

The Boat Race

Come along to cheer on the your favourite colour of Blue at The Bowler, 13 rue d'Artois, 75008 Paris.

We have arranged for both the Ladies' and the Men's races to be shown on the Bowler's big screen so that both Oxford and Cambridge alumni can meet up to cheer on their favourites. Can Oxford break the recent run of Cambridge wins in both categories?

The Ladies' race starts at 15:46 French time, with the Men's race one hour later, so reserve your afternoon to come along and show your support. The Bowler serves reasonably priced pub meals, so why not make a full afternoon of it and have lunch before the rowing starts.
