OP Leeds City Drinks

The Leeds drinks event returned in style at the opulent Grand Pacific, part of the newly refurbished Queen's Hotel. With restrictions lifted, OPs were keen to get back out and come to events again.

25 OPs and staff, including the OP President, Joan Gough (75-77) and the Headmaster, Toby Seth, gathered for the informal get together. The drinks and conversations were soon flowing and everyone enjoyed catching up and socialising again after two years of lockdowns.

Joan commented: “It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and wonderful to see so many OPs of all ages. I was particularly delighted to meet some of the younger OPs and to catch up with retired teacher, Chris Solomon (68-03) and some of my contemporaries who I hadn’t seen since school days 45 years ago!”

Chris Solomon (Former Staff 69-03)
