The Savile Club was a new venue for the Pioneers Club London Luncheon this year, courtesy of Gavin Henderson, CBE (Le. 1960-65), and what a beautiful venue it was.
We returned to the Jones Family Project in Shoreditch for our City Networking drinks, one of the many projects run by OB and serial entrepreneur Duncan Watts (Ry. 1979-84).
Thank you to everyone who joined us in Kuala Lumpur, it was lovely to see you all, do stay in touch!
Last Saturday saw the return of our 2005 leavers to the College, a decade on since they graduated as pupils. The group were welcomed back in Scott’s Café (or Café de Paris in 2005) with a glass of bubbles and some familiar faces in the form of Mr Grocott, Assistant Headmaster and Mr Smith (Common Room 1973-2011).
The first inaugural ‘Medical Conference’ took place in the Rose Lecture Theatre on the evening of Wednesday 6th of May. Over 50 Upper Fifth and Lower Sixth students were in attendance, including some from Cardinal Newman and Hove Park schools.
This year’s President’s Luncheon was held on Thursday 5th March in the wonderful surroundings of the Library at The Travellers Club, hosted here for the second year running. The Club was founded, in 1819, 'for gentlemen who had travelled out of the British Isles to a distance of at least five hundred miles from London in a direct line'.
The sun was shining as the first few intrepid OBs made their way up the stairs to find each other for Brighton Drinks on Thursday.
Despite the rather grotty weather, by 10.30 on Thursday we had over 40 Old Brightonians, as well as a few long suffering partners come together in Scott’s Café for a quick cup of coffee and a welcome from Alan Bird – Deputy Headmaster.
