Events

The Old Maidstonian Society holds regular and occasional events. One annual fixture is the Annual Supper, normally on the penultimate Friday of March and preceded by the Annual General Meeting (see under Organization), both held at the School. This page and the posts in the events category list others. Also included are School events to which OMs are invited.

OMs are encouraged to come to the School’s annual carol service, which this year is after universities’ terms are over, on December 19th. 7.30 PM at All Saints’ church. OMs and others can meet over the free mulled wine and mince pie reception afterwards at the church, and perhaps go on to a pub (we have not tried to book as venues not already booked are hard to find at that date).

The next events being organized are the quiz on 17th October 2018, the London get-together on 22nd November 2018, 7PM at the George Inn, Borough High St., the annual carol service on 20th December 2018, followed by mulled wine as usual, and the annual supper on 26 April 2019.

There is an Old Maidstonians rugby team, organised jointly with Maidstone Rugby Club.

CURRENT AND RECENT EVENT LISTINGS

MGS Christmas Concert & Carol Service 2021

Posted on November 12th, 2021

MGS Christmas Concert & Carol Service
All Saints Church, Maidstone, 7:00 pm Thursday 16th December

All Old Maidstonians and their families and partners are warmly invited to this annual event.

Having been apart for most of the last two years, the festive period is a great chance to reunite and catch up with your fellow OMs, especially those of you who are recent leavers, so why not come along to All Saints Church on Thursday 16th December @ 7pm.

The Committee would like to take this opportunity to wish all members of the Old Maidstonian Society, and your families, a very Merry Xmas and a healthy New Year. We look forward to meeting you at the events in 2022.

2021 Autumn Supper

Posted on July 9th, 2021

On Saturday 25th September the Society is holding an Autumn Supper in the School Hall as an occasion to get members and partners together for a sociable evening with fellow OM’s.
We had to cancel two Annual Suppers in April 2020 and this year so this will be something of an occasion to “catch up” with fellow members, but with less formality than the Annual Supper.

Here is a link to the flyer with full details including menu and booking details (PDF format). This has also been emailed to members.

The event will start at around 4.00 pm and the school will be open so that members can see recent developments and major upgrades to the school’s facilities: the “All Weather” sports pitch; the new pavilion; the refurbished library; as well as recent classroom and laboratory upgrades.

Year 13 leavers from 2020 and 2021 were denied any traditional “farewell fling” to end their school days so this will be a superb opportunity for them to get together.

A buffet supper is being arranged for around 6.30 pm at £13 per head: details and menu are in the flyer. A pay bar will be provided for drinks before and during the meal. Our President Nancy Powell and the Headmaster will say a few words of welcome (much less formal than the Annual Supper!) and after the meal members will be welcome to socialise and chat with friends further, with proceedings coming to a close sometime between 8.30 and 9.00 pm. So not a “late” night but one starting in daylight to see what has become of our old school.

Hopefully this will be well supported and will take the place of the “London Event” we have held in recent years. As a Saturday evening it should be easier for OM’s from across the South East to get to Maidstone to meet and have a Reunion with friends.

Your Committee hope that the traditional Annual Supper will be held as usual in the Spring of 2022.
