OLD ALTRINCHAMIANS ANNUAL DINNER AT BLANCHFLOWER RESTAURANT, ALTRINCHAM FRIDAY 4TH MARCH 2022 – 7PM
Join the Head & Old Friends in a New Format, New Venue for our 2022 Annual Dinner.
The remaining tickets are now on sale for the 2022 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.
This event was originally going to take place in 2020. Anyone who bought and paid for a ticket way back then, will already have their place. This means the remaining tickets are very much limited and we expect to sell out fast based on the interest shown so far.
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 let us know if you’re interested and we’ll get that set up..
Anyone wanting to meet up beforehand to chat with old friends over a pint have plenty of options available nearby to Blanchflower.
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.
