Old Bradfordians London Club Ltd (OB London Club)

The OB London Club has a flourishing membership of former pupils.

Our flagship annual event is the Annual Dinner in November at the Carlton Club – the 2017 Annual Dinner will be on Friday 24 November.

We’re also planning more ad hoc events, including riverside drinks and get-togethers at various venues across London.

History

Following an initiative by ACR Carter – our founder and an early Secretary and President – the OB London Club was established by a group of prominent Old Bradfordians (then known as “Old Boys”) living in London and the South East. Our first recorded meeting was in 1896, and the Club was incorporated in 1913 in its present form as an independent club for Old Bradfordians living, working or just visiting the Capital.

The Club today

The aims of the Club remain the same today, and we extend a warm welcome to guests of Old Bradfordians at our regular programme of dinners and get-togethers.

Aims

The main objective of the OB London Club is to provide opportunities for former pupils to meet up and enjoy a regular programme of dinners and other get-togethers.

Supporting current pupils and Old Bradfordians

The OB London Club contributes to:

  • a Sixth Form Scholarship at the School
  • support of the Robert Miura Bursary Fund that assists pupils through their entire career at school
  • running the James and Eliza Drummond Studentship Trust for postgraduate students
  • sponsoring the sports prize at the School’s Speech Day
  • other charitable donations in support of the School and pupils, made on an ad hoc basis.
