Well, what a turn out... what a venue! Last night's London Drinks really was a cracker! Home House was a new experience for me - a beautiful spot in W1 that many might fairly describe as "swanky".

And the place really drew in the numbers; the single largest turn out of OBs I've yet seen, and a terrific cross-section of old and young, familiar and less-so.

Always great to see Benjamin Stott (R. 1979-84) & Guy Bradshaw (R. 1979-84) from my own year, and to catch up with Shirley Waldron (F. 1976-78), Mark Green (A. 1973-78), Matthew Walters (D. 1977-80), Colette Lister (F. 1981-83), Katherine Stoddart (nee Grant) (F. 1981-83) & Rhona Grant (F. 1980-82). We also had wonderful shows from long-lost alumni Charlie Dove-Edwin and John Bushell as well as Geoffrey Kelly (R. 1982-87), Rob Little (A. 1980-87), Aidan Bowen (L. 1983-87) and many others.

I very much look forward to visiting this super club again soon.. very soon in fact; I left my card behind the bar and an unpaid tab, so I'm heading up there now to rescue the former and settle the latter!
