OP London Meet Draws A Record Crowd

The Old Princethorpians' London Meet on Friday 30 September at the Marquess of Anglesey on Bow Street, Covent Garden, drew a record crowd of nearly 60 OPs from across the decades.

The Old Princethorpians' London Meet on Friday 30 September at the Marquess of Anglesey on Bow Street, Covent Garden, drew a record crowd of nearly 60 OPs from across the decades.

OPs braved the unseasonal cold and rainy conditions to attend the meet, which was held in the pub's stylish upstairs Queen Charlotte's Bar. 

The London meet is now a well established event in our calendar and many of the attendees were regulars, though it was lovely to see a fair few new faces too. OPs were represented from as early as the 1970s, the 1980s and the early 2000s, and there were a large contingent of younger OPs from 2012 onwards. 

Headmaster, Ed Hester and teachers, Alex Darkes, Fr Teddy O'Brien and Tracey Hester enjoyed catching up with their past pupils, and as ever it was a delight to see the OPs of all ages networking, swapping stories and catching up.

The welcome drinks and delicious hot and cold buffet laid on by the OPs Committee were also much appreciated by all.

As well as the social aspects of the evening, a number of OPs kindly offered contributions to the College archive and assistance with our upcoming Careers Fair, which will take place in March 2023.
