Description

Ovatio Hillardiana: A Gathering of his Students in Celebration of Tom Hillard

After four decades of shaping the careers and lives of legions of ancient history students in Australia, especially at the University of New England and Macquarie Univerisity, Tom Hillard is retiring.

To commemorate this momentous event and his stellar career; and also to provide the opportunity for these students to say a very well-deserved "thank you" to Tom, we are holding Ovatio Hillardiana: A Gathering of his Students in Celebration of Tom Hillard.

Where: The Harbour View Hotel, the Rocks, Sydney (see the Map below)

Date and Time: Sunday 13 August 2017, 2 pm to 7 pm.

Dress code: Casual––HAWAIIAN SHIRT OPTIONAL, BUT ENCOURAGED! :-)


The aim is to gather as many of Tom's current and former students as can be held in the Bridge Room of the Harbour View Hotel in the Rocks, Sydney. So please share this with as many of Tom's students as you know!


This is a FREE event––there is no charge! Beverages are complimentary and will be served from 2 pm. Food platters will come out on the hour from 3 pm, but dinner will not be part of the event. Should you like to have dinner, the Harbour View Hotel has a fantastic restaurant near the Bridge Room.


Tom has impacted the lives of so many people in all different walks of life, so we are expecting that a great crowd will want to see him off.

And this is fantastic!


But this also means that we shall most likely fill any reasonably sized (and reasonably priced!) venue easily. Because we are adamant that this be a FREE event for all, we have been forced to cap numbers. Therefore, we are compelled, regrettably, to impose two regulations:

  • RSVP IS ESSENTIAL. You can RSVP on this Eventbrite site by going to the 'Tickets' section (don't worry, they're FREE!) and the ticket name is 'Hillard RSVP'. But we sadly cannot allow anyone showing up unannounced on the day because of our obligations to the Harbour View Hotel.

  • STUDENTS AND EX-STUDENTS ONLY. Because of the same space constraints, we are also forced, regrettably, to make this a student-only event. For Tom's colleagues, there will be a corresponding STAFF-ONLY event organized. We are very sorry to be forced to add that this means that NO SPOUSES and NO CHILDREN (unless these happen to be/to have been students of Tom's!). The afternoon is going to be all about Tom and his students, so we hope you understand that we have to do this to ensure that as many students as possible, within the limitations of space, get the chance to wish Tom well and thank him in person.


WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE! :-D
