OR London Lunch 2019

On Thursday 5 September we held our annual OR London Lunch at the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge.

This is the third time that the lunch has been held at this central venue, and its stunning views across Hyde Park looked glorious in the autumn sunshine. We were absolutely delighted that 52 ORs attended, representing 7 decades at the school. 

The lunch started with a welcome drink downstairs, before moving upstairs to the Mountbatten Room for lunch. Once everyone was seated, ORA President Ginny Stephen (de Trense, No.3, 1954 - 60) welcomed everyone to the event. She was followed by Roger Saunders, Chair of Council, and the Headmaster, Oliver Blond, who updated everyone on the fantastic progress the School has made over the past year. The speeches were followed by a delicious 3 course lunch, starting with a pressed terrine of BBQ chicken, followed by either a spiced fillet of sea bream or a summer vegetable risotto and finishing with a summer fruit Pavlova.

The event is always a fantastic opportunity to catch up with OR friends, or to make new ones, and we hope to see many more of you at next year's lunch.
