OLA 106th Annual Dinner 2018

27 Apr 2018

The current Head Boy and two deputies, very soon to be the newest Old Lyonians, came as guests to the OLA's 106th Annual Dinner.

Former teachers, Roger French, Ray Cobb, David Rimmer, and Brian Holgate also joined over 100 OLs back at the School for a very convivial evening. Captions for this photo of Brian and David welcome!

The night began with a drinks reception provided by John Lyon School.  Catering staff Sarah and Milena, pictured below, making the very necessary preparations!

Many caught up with old friends over the drinks and superb four-course dinner.

The evening finished, as is tradition, with John Davies leading the entire company to sing the School song, 40 Years On.

If any OLs who were there on the night have photos they would like to share, or would like copies of any in the album, please email
