‘Silk & Salt’ Dinner at Arley Hall, Cheshire
Held on Thursday 26 June 2014

Old Wykehamists, young and old, their wives and parents, both past and present, were fortunate enough to enjoy a special evening dining at the home of Lord and Lady Ashbrook on Thursday, 26th June.

Even more fortunate were those who turned up early enough to accompany Zoe Ashbrook on a private tour of her beautiful gardens, for which Arley Hall is renowned. Tribal banter was exchanged between Michael Ashbrook, an Etonian, and David Fellowes during their respective speeches, but suffice it to say that the Amicabilis Concordia remains very much in tact.

Charles Foster (C, 1945-50) was technically Sen Man, but as he lived upstairs, being Lord Ashbrook’s brother-in-law, honours were amicably shared with Chris Mallett (D, 1949-54), who had rather further to come. Giles Wingate-Saul QC (F, 1958-63) made the responding speech.
