Join us for Lunch

Wednesday Lunch Club

Nine lunches are held at the OC Clubhouse on the first Wednesday of the month and these have been running now for over fifty years: attendance sees an average of nearly forty OCs. Two of the other three lunches are invitations from the Headmaster and held at the School. The final event is the Away Day which is always held at a restaurant deep in the heart of the Essex countryside.

All OCs, of any age plus their partners, are very welcome.
