OGs and friends gather in Brussels

Thank you to our wonderful hosts, Guy and Katharina Knapton for all their hard work in organising such a wonderful weekend.  

The weekend began with drinks in the heart of Brussels followed by a traditional Belgian Brasserie for supper. On Saturday more OGs met up at the House of European History for a light lunch followed by a tour of the museum and then a brief rest before gathering at the home of Guy and Katharina Knapton. We began with cocktails outside on the terrace and a wonderful dinner celebrating all that is good in Flemish and Belgian cuisine. Speeches and reminiscences about Downside then and now were in abundance and everyone had a thoroughly great evening.
