The upcoming OS Weekend will take place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019. The Weekend will be held in conjunction with OS Sports Weekend, including OS hockey, rugby and netball fixtures against the School teams. There will also be a special Alumni Cross Country Run on Saturday afternoon with participants from St. Anselm’s College and Shrewsbury School competing.
If you are able to play for any the OS sporting teams, please contact Benjamin Collins direct at [email protected] at your earliest convenience.
There will be a complimentary OS Lunch on Saturday at 1pm at the Hirst Centre, before the school sporting fixtures (including the 1st XV vs. RGS Newcastle at Buskholme). There are a couple of places still available for the OS Dinner at 8pm on the Saturday evening at the Black Bull Hotel. The cost is £35 per person which includes a drinks reception, three-course-meal with drink and coffee. If you are under 30, this cost is subsidised to £20 per person. If you require accommodation for the Saturday evening, the OS Club has reserved some rooms locally.
Please contact Benjamin Collins at [email protected] if you are interested in attending either of these events. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
