Quinquagesimal or ‘Q’ for short was founded by Sam Smart (a 45) back in 1996. All OS who left Sherborne over 50 years ago have been invited back to Sherborne every other year to celebrate. In 2013, Sam extended ‘Q’ to include a London event. So, on October 24th, the inaugural London Quinquagesimal was held at Dulwich College. After reminiscence over coffee, some 40 OS sat down to listen to a fine talk by Dulwich archivist, Calista Lucy, on Edward Alleyn, his impact on Elizabethan theatre and his connection with Dulwich. An excellent lunch followed with amusing speeches from both Colin Niven (Sherborne Staff 73-83) and former Dulwich Deputy Head, Terry Walsh.
