The Salopian Club's annual drinks parties, held in London, Birmingham and Shrewsbury attracted record numbers of attendees this year.

The City Drinks on 20 November, held for a second time in the pleasant surroundings of the Travellers Club in Pall Mall, attracted upwards of 170 guests.  Headmaster, Mark Turner, reported on recent developments at the School, including the successful introduction of girls into the 3rd Form from September 2014.

Shrewsbury Christmas Drinks on 5 December, which this year also celebrated 50 years of Shrewsbury School Foundation, was also attended by almost 200 people including Old Salopians, parents and staff members past and present .  The guests were treated to drinks, canapés and serenaded by a live harpist, Penny-Robin Riddering.

Birmingham Drinks, on 27 November was a smaller event but no less enjoyable for the 30+ Old Salopians and guests who joined Branch Chairman,  Richard Woodgate (Rt 1954-59) and his guest of honour, Richard Hudson (M 1967-72, Housemaster of Churchill's and editor of 'The Salopian').  The event was followed, as usual by a dinner party at a local restaurant.
