Annual Old Boys' Founders' Day Dinner held at BGS

The annual Old Boys’ Founders’ Day Dinner took place on the evening of Founders' Day.

The annual Old Boys’ Founders’ Day Dinner is a lively and popular event attracting BGS Old Boys of all ages from across the globe. The event took place at School starting with a drinks reception in the Old Boys’ Club House (situated next to the swimming pool overlooking the cricket field) followed by a sumptuous three course dinner in the Boys’ School Assembly Hall.

Guests enjoyed speeches from Mr Pat Newton, Mr Devin Cassidy and from guest speaker, Mr Simon Ferley. The event was open to all Old Boys and seating was arranged in year groups so provided the perfect opportunity to reminisce of BGS days gone by and network with other BGS Old Boys.
