Biennial Dinner 2016

The 42nd Biennial Dinner took place on Saturday, 15 October 2016 and provided an opportunity for Old Edwardians to catch up over a drinks reception, a concert from the KES Senior Swing Band in the auditorium of the Sir Paul and Lady Ruddock Performing Arts Centre, and a four course dinner in Big School. The evening culminated with drinks back in the Performing Arts Centre Foyer.

This year’s guest speaker was Miles Benjamin (OE 2006). Miles has enjoyed an incredible career as a rugby union player for both The Worcester Warriors (where he won the Young Player of the Year Award during Worcester’s 2007-08 season awards) and The Leicester Tigers. Internationally, Miles played for the England Under 19's team at the 2007 IRB Under 19's World Championships and he also represented the England Under 20's team at the 2008 IRB Under 20's World Cup, finishing as runners up. After a number of injuries, Miles retired from the game in 2016.

Prior to the concert the School was open for Old Edwardians to have a look around. The WW1 exhibition in the chapel was also open which has been re-designed to commemorate Old Edwardians who lost their lives in the Somme Campaign.

A selection of photographs were taken on the night.
