Drinks Reception at Mansion House

Parents, alumni, governors, staff and pupils had a wonderful time at Mansion House, London last night. We were very privileged to have been invited by former pupil and The Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor, Alderman Charles Bowman to host an event at this prestigious venue. Headboy, Otto Bagshaw and Headgirl, Elle Jeffrey were on duty welcoming guests as they arrived and William Cardozo, Freddie Harrison, Ella Pryke, Lily Myers, Nolly Mannion-Miles, Francis Topham-Smith, Cecilly and Fenella Jewers, Evalina Hills and Alexander Pascalides provided guests with very accomplished musical performances.

The Lord Mayor, Charles Bowman gave a terrific speech about his fond memories of OBH both as a pupil and as a parent. He also outlined his achieve-ments and continued ambitions for the remainder of his time inoffice. Nick Bullen, Chair of Governors, on behalf of OBH, thanked the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for allowing the school to come to the Mansion House for a very delightful evening.

For all of those children attending it was a magical experience to perform in such an historic venue, and in front of so much of the wider OBH community. The changing generations of OBH were well represented – from the 1950’s to the present day, by old boys and girls, past and present governors, current and future heads and, of course, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.
