Parents welcome at two exciting summer Old Salopian events

Wednesday 17 April 2013

The Salopian Club regularly organises regional events which parents are always welcome to attend.  There are details below of two events occurring in June which may be of particular interest.


Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick: Reception and dinner on Friday 7th June. 
This promises to be the highlight of this year’s Salopian events calendar, attended by the Headmaster and featuring musical accompaniment by School musicians. The historic and beautiful medieval venue sits in the centre of Warwick and currently serves as a retirement home for old soldiers (rather like Chelsea Hospital). 

There are strong links between the Lord Leycester and the School, as a former owner of the property was Mary Sidney, wife of Sir Philip Sidney. 

Guided Tour of the Queen’s Galleries – Buckingham Palace Wednesday 26th June. 
An evening guided tour of the Queen’s Galleries with one of the expert staff.   The original tour on Tuesday 25 June sold out within hours so we are delighted to offer another opportunity on Wednesday 26 June to view the exhibition.  There are still some tickets left but early booking is advised.  The tour lasts approximately one hour (6.30pm to 7.30pm) with a glass of wine in the Gallery Shop at the end.  The exhibition is entitled “In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion”. 

Further details of both these events, and many others, are on the Salopian Club events page or from the Salopian Office or 01743 280 892.
