ANNUAL DINNER 2017

N.B. The AGM was held, at 06:15, before the Dinner - To view those proceedings, click on AGM.

Our Annual Dinner took place on 20th October 2017 (after the AGM) at the Athenaeum in Liverpool. This event was attended by some 80 old boys, some having travelled from many areas in the U.K. They all share a strong passion for our School which has now been closed since 1985. This evening forms a tribute to the memories of our time in Shaw Street. The principal of Liverpool College, Hans Broekman, was also in attendance.

Our speaker, Professor William Hughes, this year, travelled all the way from Trowbridge in Wiltshire and endured a frustrating journey to Liverpool due to motorway congestion. An author of some 20 books, William attended school from 1975 to 1982 and is now Professor of Medical Humanities and Gothic Literature at Bath Spa University. His role has taken him to many overseas countries lecturing to large numbers of students. Recently he had an audience of 800 in India but he says this was not as daunting as addressing a mere 80 who were present at our dinner!

In addition to his professional role he was able to illuminate us with his extensive knowledge and intimate detail of our school building. It was clear that he had explored the building in microscopic detail and provided us with examples of a number of locations and areas which perhaps only he was aware of.

A video of the speech has been prepared. This can be viewed by clicking on Video (Returning to this page, via the reverse arrow in the top left corner of the video.)

Speaking for us all, I would like to say "Bill, we are most gratefu to youl for addressing us this year and hope that you enjoyed the opportunity to renew your acquaintance with former pupils."

To close the evening all present announced their names and years at School and as is our custom we then sang the School Song. This was followed by the School chant.

Another very pleasant evening enjoyed by all. Finally, I must mention the part played by our regular MC, Lionel Ross. His entertaining talent was again evident from the start, when he introduced officers of the Association. I always wonder how he dreams up a different and appropriate humorous introduction each year. We, on the Committee, usually chide him with only having one same-old-joke, each year. He takes it all in fun and just gives us that (usual) wide grin. Well done and thanks for your contribution to the evening.
The next Annual Dinner is scheduled for Friday 19th October 2018, at the Athenaeum.
