|OBA Events and Reunions|
What made this event historic was that all the OBs had left King’s before 1966 and a reunion on this scale, for this cohort of OBs, has never happened before. The purpose of the lunch was to launch our 500th Anniversary Celebrations, to celebrate the School, and provide an opportunity for the OBs present, aged from 70 to over 90, to meet up with old friends, some of whom they had not seen since they left school. It was also an opportunity for the Headmaster to update the OBs present on the progress with the new Music School.
Chris Rhys-Jones (O45/49) started proceedings with a short Grace, and during coffee the Headmaster gave a ‘state of the nation’ address. Roger Gallannaugh (O54/57) was able to give the OBs a brief talk explaining the architecture of the new Music School.
The lunch, masterminded by the Events Manager, Gilly Bunday, was a very special gathering where conversations flowed, stories were shared, old friendships were rekindled and new friendships made. The Headmaster concluded with an invitation to all the OBs to visit King’s to see the new Music School, after which Richard ‘Tich’ Sullivan (N58/62) led a wonderful rendition of the School song. It was a great day out in London at an incredible venue. Floreat Brutonia!
