2023 Old Boys' Reunion Dinner

Following a discussion with the Old Mancunians Advisory Committee, it has been agreed to merge this year’s Reunion and Old Boys’ Dinners. The new event will take place on Saturday 18 November in the Memorial Hall from 6:00pm. This is also the same date of the Gatley run which will take place at the School at 2:00pm.

Decade ImagesOld Mancunians who attended MGS during the 70s, as well as those celebrating their 10th, 20th and 30th anniversary of leaving the School, are encouraged to attend, however, Old Mancunians of any era can attend with partners welcome too. We already have an Old Mancunian attending from each decade! Traditionally this is a black-tie event but attendees should feel comfortable to attend wearing a jacket and tie, including any version of an MGS tie!
