OBs, staff and friends of the School came together over the summer for ‘The Festival of Beer’ at Blackpit Brewery in Buckinghamshire. Run by three OBs, Ben Williams (91-02), Oliver Whiteley (92-02) and Duncan Wheeler (95-02), the Brewery held a family weekend festival which brought together some great beer, wonderful food, live music, theatre and family fun.
As part of the entertainment, guests were treated to an immersive theatre experience which was written and directed by current staff member and OB Jonathon Hooley (89-95), assisted by staff member Bjorn Bantock. ‘The Collector’ took the audience on a journey through the woodlands sharing the actors’ memories and showing how these shape our lives. We were delighted to see OB Ethan Chapell-Mason (07-18) in one of the lead roles.
DVP for Bedfordshire Jason Reddy (79-84), OB Club Chairman Craig Mitchel (94-74), OB Club Director Hugh Maltby (73-83), and BSA Officer Bev Marshall all took the opportunity to visit the festival with their families and friends. We hope you will join us at next year’s festival……watch this space!
