Vanbrugh Castle School

Reunion September 2021

Vanbrugh Castle School Reunion –
Sunday 5th September 2021

The year 2021 is the 100th anniversary of the opening of Vanbrugh Castle School. To mark the occasion it is proposed to hold another (and final) reunion at the Castle on Sunday 5th September.

Several old boys were unable to attend the last meeting in 2018 so this is another opportunity for them, and of course everybody else, to re-visit the school.

If you would like to go to this event please send an email to Danny Downes.

Important announcement March 2021

Good Day All,

The number of old boys expressing a wish to attend the reunion has meant that we have to make some changes to the arrangements so that the owners of The Cedars and the flats in the castle are not overrun by us.

Therefore, the following details will apply:

The number of people attending the reunion will be limited to 120. This, in turn, means that we will have to limit the number of guests per old boy/member of staff to one each. If you have already said that you will be attending then a place is booked for you. If you have indicated that you will be bringing more than one guest then only one guest is booked for you. Lisa Taylor has always stated that her door will always be open for old VCS boys and this remains the case. If you want to take your extended family to see the school then please arrange a future visit directly with Lisa.

If you haven't stated already that you wish to attend then now is the time to do it; spaces are limited. Equally, if you have stated that you will be attending but you can't go, please cancel your booking to free up space.

Guests are asked to kindly contribute £10 per head towards the cost borne by the host on the day. The contribution will go towards food, drink and other sundry items.

Guided tours of the castle flats will be limited to those who did not attend the 2018 reunion. However, it may be possible for all to tour the castle should the opportunity arise.

There will be limited guided tours of The Cedars (Wakefield Wing) but Lisa is comfortable with self-guided tours.

Parking on the drive of The Cedars will be on a first come first served basis. Car parking vouchers will be available for street parking.

It's hoped you all understand the need for these measures and we want to make this Centenary one to remember, especially as it is the last to be held at The Cedars and in the castle grounds.

Please send any emails to Danny Downes here.
