Annual Dinner 17th April 2020
I am delighted to finally reveal the details of the 2020 Old Altrinchamians Annual Dinner and it’s safe to say it’s going to be a bit different!
After discussion with many Old Alts, we’ve gone for a more casual event this year, to be held at Blanchflower on Shaws Road, Altrincham (opposite the renovated and very popular Altrincham Market). It’s a relatively new and highly commended establishment, with a capacity of only 70 diners so tickets this year are very much limited and we expect to sell out fast based on the initial interest.
You’ll remember that the school is around a mile away, (a short dash, or a leisurely stroll, depending on whether you attended school when lunch time trips to Alty were allowed or not!), so for those who enjoy a pre-dinner tour of the School, they will be doing tours at 3pm on the same day, so please contact the School if you’re interested.
Anyone wanting to meet up beforehand to chat with old friends over a pint have plenty of options available.
Within this fresh approach, there’s still plenty of room for important association traditions – the Head Master will be in attendance to share the latest school news, the raffle will entertain and reward once again, we’ll light candles to remember those Old Alts who have since passed and most importantly, friends old and new from AGSB will be with you to share the experience.
