The 2020 Old Maidstonian Society AGM and Annual Supper will be held at the school on Friday 27th March 2020. Dress is jacket and tie.
The AGM will be held from 17:45 to 18:30. The Supper will commence promptly at 19:30, and will conclude equally promptly by 22:00, as there will again be a Master of Ceremonies to ensure that all runs on time, as it has done for the past couple of years.
The President, Nancy Powell, has invited Toby Davies as her guest. Toby left MGS in 1994. Since leaving he has worked as a stage and screen writer (something he began to much acclaim whilst at MGS). He has worked on major TV series, and stage shows, here and in the US for a range of production companies. We are certain he will be an entertaining speaker.
The incoming President for 2020 to 2021 will be Graham Walker, who retired in 2018 after 37 years at MGS, and whom many of you will remember, not least because he was the President’s guest at the Annual Supper last year.
There will again be a professional bar service with beer, spirits, port and soft drinks being served before dinner and also at tables during the meal. The bar will be open by 18:00, and the hall and bar will remain open until 23:00. Entrance will again only be through the main entrance door, where you will be greeted.
There were many compliments about the newly appointed caterers for last year’s Annual Supper, Cucina. They will again be preparing our meal. The menu is available at this link as a PDF file or at this link in Word format. The meal will again be served at the tables. The caterer will provide place names with each diner’s menu choices printed on one side.

Pre-select their menu choices from the attached menu, and forward them to the Membership Secretary by the online form at this link, or by e-mail to email@example.com, or by phone, or by mail to the school addressed to the OMS;

The cost is £25 per head, which remains the same as last year and still reflects the very high quality and quantity of food being served. In view of the fact that meals will be prepared and served with each individual’s menu selections, payment must be made in advance.
