There were numerous get togethers and reunions both official and unofficial in 2018. Here are a few
highlights. If you would like to organise a reunion of your year group and would like some help from the
OP office, please get in touch with Rachel.
Over 70 OPs and their guests enjoyed a fabulous
evening at the Cavalry & Guards Club for the annual OP
London black tie dinner on Friday 24 November 2017.
The occasion also provided the perfect opportunity
for the ’77 leavers to hold a reunion to mark their
40 years since leaving school. Club member, David
Parker (75-84) sponsored the event, which took
place in the elegant Field Marshal’s Room following a
drinks reception in the adjoining Garden Room.
NEWC ASTL E DRIN KS
The Newcastle drinks event was held on Thursday
1 February 2018 at the Northern Counties Club
through club member Nick Lumley (80-87). The
move to a drinks format rather than a dinner proved
popular last year and with the move to the new venue
this year, numbers were even higher with 35 OPs and
guests in attendance.
E U N IO N
30 YEAR R
On Saturday 1 September 2018, James Sweeting (81-88)
spearheaded a reunion for the class of ’88 celebrating 30 years since
leaving school. The group of 27 headed to Carluccio’s in York for
dinner followed by drinks at Kennedy’s Bar. By strange coincidence,
the OPs ran into a group of ’88 leavers from St Peter’s who were
also on a night out!
