The OB Deutschland group was delighted to greet numerous Old Bedfordians and Alumnae of Bedford High School in Germany to the Annual Autumn Reunion this November in Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. After a casual meeting on Friday evening in the Old Town, we explored the sights of Düsseldorf including the beautiful Rhine waterfront and the Christmas Market further on Saturday.
The highlight of the reunion was the big Reunion Dinner at the traditional restaurant ‘Zum Schiffchen’ on Saturday evening. A wide range of OBs attended the event, from those who had left the School in 1996 to recent leavers. We were happy to welcome our former German teacher Frank Inglis (Staff 90-11) to the dinner, who made his second appearance following on from our Reunion in Berlin. Everyone very much enjoyed reminiscing about numerous German lessons with Frank and in particular about various German plays performed at Bedford School.
A Sunday brunch rounded up a wonderful reunion weekend and we are very much looking forward to our next event in spring 2017. As always, all OBs and partners are very welcome to attend events and reunions organised by our group. We wish to thank the OB Club and Bedford School for their support.
