DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
The London Dinner
Date 27 June 2015
Time 10:30 to 17:00
Giggleswick School
As usual all OGs are most welcome.
This year features a Style House Gathering for
all former members of Style House as well as
reuniting those who left the school either 50,
25 or 5 years ago (1965, 1989 and 2010.)
In a new departure, the day will begin with the Chapel service at 10.30
prior to coffee in the Sharpe Library and tours of the School given by
members of the Lower Sixth.
Date 11 April 2015
Time 18:30 to 23:00
HMS Belfast, London
Cost£90
The London Dinner this year is aboard HMS Belfast! In a fitting location
to recognise the contribution of OGs to The Second World War which
ended 70 years ago.
We will dine in The Ship’s Company Dining Hall where the crew of HMS
Belfast gathered for their meals before events in history like the Battle of
the North Cape and the D-Day barrage.
The three course meal will be preceeded by a sparkling wine reception,
table wine will be an additional cost.
Prior to the dinner (7.30) guests will have access to the Arctic Mess Decks
and the main exhibition area from 6.30pm. Included in this are the
permanent exhibitions ‘Life at Sea’ and ‘War and Peace’. Guests will also
be able to walk on the outside decks.
Given that this was once a fighting ship, sensible footwear for ladies
might be an advantage!
The Doubletree by Hilton, Westminster Hotel.
Anthony Briggs (OG Hon Sec) has again kindly organised a discounted
rate at this hotel.
Please contact Anthony, [email protected] if you wish to
reserve a room at this rate - the breakfast is great!

The day is again aimed at all age groups and in particular at providing
interest for family members. Following last year’s first cycle ride, there
will be a Gigg to Gigg cycle ride for those of all abilities who prefer their
exercise on 2 wheels.
As usual OG cricketers will be playing the School whilst tennis and clay
pigeon shooting takes place nearby. The swimming pool will be open
for families in the afternoon.
The day will end, of course, with tea on top pitch where visitors can
enjoy the final overs of the cricket match whilst sharing news and
reminiscences with old friends.
