More than fifty 2009 OHs enjoy a super reunion at Pergola Paddington

OHs from the class of 2009 enjoyed a super evening at a reunion event supported by the Haileybury Society at the Pergola Paddington, London, on Saturday, 18th May. 

Organisers Marcus Farnfield and Sophie Shepherd estimate that around 50 OHs met up where they chatted, ate and drank for a good 6 hours or so! They were also joined by a contingent from Germany who flew in from Munich just to be there. 

As Marcus says,

"All in all, it was a brilliant evening. It was great to hear stories of all they everyone has been up to - some for the first time since we left back in 09.

I'd highly recommend the venue if anyone asks for any advice in the future. They were brilliant at providing us with plenty of space and were really organised with the drinks tokens - kindly provided by the Haileybury Society - and had loads of relaxed, street food style food bars that people could get some dinner from whenever they fancied it.

Thanks for all your support, it really made the evening having a couple of drinks to get it all started!"

We at the Haileybury Society were delighted to help, Marcus!
