The Old Hamptonians’ Alumni Dinner 2019 will be held on Saturday 23 March.
The dinner will be held in the Main Hall at the School. Pre-dinner drinks will be served from 7.00pm with dinner at 7.45pm. Tours of the school will be available from 6.00pm. The dress code will be black tie or lounge suit.
This year, our special guest and principal speaker will be Owen Wyatt OH (2003), Managing Director at The Stylist Group which is owned by DC Thomson, one of the UK’s biggest media companies. Owen is a former sports journalist and broadcaster, starting his career at Sky Sports where he became a reporter on European Football before moving on to become Sports Editor at Reuters, the world’s largest news agency. With Reuters, he covered the Olympic Games as well as Rugby and Football World Cups. He left Reuters and with three friends built Base79, a YouTube video company that was sold in 2014 for £50million, after which he ran CNN’s advertising and distribution business across EMEA. Owen’s first piece of journalism was an interview with Anne Widdecombe, which appeared in The Lion.
Tickets for the dinner are priced at £40 a head (£25 a head for under 25).
The dinner is a wonderful opportunity to revisit the school and to meet with friends old and new as we celebrate the school and our bond with it.
