26th February 2022 – Stonyhurst Association Annual Dinner
From Association President, Dominic Hartley OS 86: We are going to have a huge celebration of all things Stonyhurst at the brand new Pan Pacific Hotel in London. It’s going to be a wonderful evening in one of London’s most sumptuous hotels thanks to calling in a few favours from my cousin CJ OS86. There will be a drinks reception, three course meal and much more, and we’ve managed to line up an inspirational speaker Jimmy Nelson OS86, from my year. Jimmy has travelled the world documenting 35 lost indigenous tribes and is an incredible photographer and Ted Talk pro. The ballroom will have the most advanced screens in the industry where we’ll be able to show his award-winning photography as well as showcasing many of the charitable works that OS are involved with. Then 29 Fingers, the band I founded with Tommy Lorimer OS86 on the drums, will take to the stage for a gig into the early hours – so come prepared to party! For those wanting to make this a special occasion, the hotel has a fine spa, infinity pool, gym and is in a stunning Plaza so shopping is also on the cards. There will be a mass at Farm Street the next day followed by an informal Sunday pub lunch for those that are not clapped out on the sofa!
