Nuffield Hall Chairs

When we opened our home at Sussex Place, with the stately Nuffield Hall at its heart, many fellows and members kindly sponsored the hall’s chairs.

Nuffield Hall ChairThese have now given a remarkable six decades of use. Sadly, over time, we have had to lose some due to wear and tear. The chairs that remain won’t fit in with the functioning of our new home.

We are pleased to offer the chairs back to any family members of the original sponsors, in the first instance. We regret that unfortunately the RCOG is unable to pay for the packing/shipping.

The sponsors and their dedications are fully documented in a dedicated gift book housed in our Archives.

We do not have a full list of the extant chairs, but if you are aware of a family sponsorship and are interested in taking the relevant chair, please do get in touch by Sunday 31 March 2019.

Unfortunately this date is a strict deadline for expressions of interest, as we need to know the remaining number at this point.

To register your interest, please contact the Curator Peter Basham at, with the name of the dedicatee, and he will let you know whether the chair is available in due course and, if so, discuss arrangements with you.
