Biggest Ever London Dinner Held at Lord's

A great night at the Home of Cricket!

150 Old Ipswichians and their guests joined us for a wonderful drinks reception in the bar before being encouraged to take their seats by the MCC stewards. Everyone walked through into the historic Long Room which is passed through by both the home and away teams as they make their way out onto the field. 

The food and wine were expertly served as our speakers, OI President Ray East, guest speaker, former cricketer Geoff Miller and the Headmaster, Nicholas Weaver spoke. 

Roars of laughter were heard throughout the room as Geoff Miller gave a lively and wonderfully funny speech. He then auctioned a signed cricket bat with proceeds going towards the School Founding Futures Bursary Fund and Prostate Cancer UK. 

Thanks goes to our speakers, Martin Holland and the staff at Lord's who made the event so memorable.
