On the 27th February, Radley College hosted the annual Caledonian Society Ball with Downe House School, Wycombe Abbey and Cheltenham Ladies College.
The night commenced with drinks in the Blue room in Mansion and then progressed through, at the sound of the bagpipes, to the Dining Hall. After dinner everyone partook in some excellent reels, among the best the Reel of the 51st Aberdonian and the Eightsome Reel, and some enthusiastic dancing. The Radley boys lead from the front and they showed on the dance floor that the practice dances paid off, even if they were a little bit under the influence.
A big thank you has to go out to the catering team for putting on a wonderful meal and the Highlanders for playing some excellent reels. Also to Miss Gregory and the respective dons from the other schools for organising this very successful evening.
