Old Bradfordian events in 2019
Friday 1 February
As part of the Old Bradfordians’ commemorations of former fellow pupils who served in WWI, Bradford Grammar School is proud to present this public lecture in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
Fabian Ware, who taught at Bradford Grammar School for a number of years during the late Victorian period, went on to establish what is now the Commonwealth War Graves Commission – a lasting memorial to the brave men who fell during the Great War.
This lecture by Commonwealth War Graves Historian, Max Dutton, provides a fascinating insight into an enduring legacy – and is a profound example of how the BGS community contributes to the world beyond the school gates.
Wednesday 17 or 24 July
Bacchus Cup Golf Competition
The Annual Golf Competition for the BACCHUS Cup will take place at Shipley Golf Club on Wednesday 17 or 24 July 2019 in the afternoon.
Participation is restricted to Members of the Association but guests may be invited. It is not essential to fix up playing partners, competitors may go out in twos or threes. The competition will be an 18 hole Stableford played from the yellow markers. There will be prizes for the winners, including a guest’s prize.
There will be a 2 course dinner with coffee, following which the Prize Presentation will take place. Shipley Golf Club requires that all golfers should be in possession of a current Handicap Certificate. Smart casual wear can be worn in the Dining Room.
The competition entry fee in 2018 was £23 plus £16 for dinner. TOTAL = £39

OBA Annual Dinner 2019
The Annual OBA Dinner is returning to School this year, with catering provided by County Catering.
Please make a note of the date – more information and invitations will follow.
We are intent on making this event a great success and with this in mind we hope that you will spread the word amongst as many OBs as possible. In particular we are keen to have a good representation of former girl pupils bearing in mind that 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the School becoming fully co-educational. As always partners and other guests will of course be most welcome.

Saturday 6 April
BGS Cross Country Club’s Heaton Woods OB event
It gives us great pleasure to announce the BGS Cross Country Club’s inaugural Heaton Woods Old Bradfordian event.
On the day, the Brownlee Pavilion will be open from noon for changing, with the aim of meeting at the traditional starting point on Redburn Road for 12.30. There will be two run options, with the hope of catering for different levels of current fitness. Afterwards the plan is to reconvene in the pavilion and chat over fish and chips. And then in the evening, some may wish to continue the social element of the event by joining us down at the ‘Mucky Duck’.
For those of you who remember Tony Kingham and Selby Brock, it is worth pointing out that they will, of course, be invited.
Please register your interest by emailing email@example.com
