On Friday 27th September a very successful OBA reunion was held at The Antelope, Eaton Terrace, London with over 50 Old Breconians in attendance. The gathering saw school leavers from 1953 through to 2013 getting together with some even travelling up from West Wales to enjoy the event. It was good to see such a varied array of Old Breconians, some of which were attending their first reunion in nearly 40 years. Although the live entertainment by Old Breconian, Harry Keyworth, was absent due to understandable circumstances the evening was full of chat and reminisces from days past, interspersed with the odd drink and some food. Many thanks to Emily M D Tait (DON, 01-08) and Chloe E B Jones (DON, 00-07) for organising such a successful event and we all look forward to repeating it next year.
If there are any South East-based Old Breconians that were not aware of the event, then please contact the OBA Secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org.
