Celebrating 20 years: The class of 2004 go all out for their noughties themed Reunion!

The Class of 2004 celebrated their 20th Reunion in style last month with a noughties themed night at the Old Brentwoods Club at Ashwells Road. One of the organisers recalls the evening:

"We decked out the Old Brentwoods Club with a noughties theme, including music and movie clips from early noughties and some choice alcopops (turbo shandy, anyone?). Someone even brought a Furby… their regret was instant.

Lots of 18th birthday parties and then eventually the graduation ball had happened at the OB’s Club, so even the choice of venue was nostalgia-steeped. We crowd-sourced photographs from our time together at school and printed loads, creating a wall of memories. The school kindly paid for a reception drink for everyone to get us underway, and before long the room was abuzz with over 40 almost-40-year-olds catching up for the first time in a couple of decades.

We were surprised by the levels of competitiveness that came out when the OB’s were grouped into their old school houses - South narrowly beating the competition to win the prize bucket of Smirnoff Ice and WKD.

All in all, it was a total success. Dozens of friendships rekindled, hundreds of memories unearthed, an all-out noughties theme and even a little dancing to Justin Timberlake towards the end. 

See you at the next one! The self-titled Class of ‘04 Party Planners."
