100 OBs gather to remember the life of Richard Tibbits

Posted on May 26, 2017by stphilipsoba

Close to 100 old boys of St Philip’s met at Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair on the eve of St Philip’s Day to celebrate the life of Richard Tibbits, the first Head Master of St Philip’s.

Generously hosted by Sir Rocco Forte at Brown’s Hotel and organised by Robert de Lannay, the event was a great success. Guests, who had travelled from Austria, France, Spain, Germany, Hong Kong, the USA and Australia, were welcomed by St Philip’s Head Boy, Finn, and Deputy Head Boy, Jasper.

Sir Rocco made an entertaining and nostalgic speech. There were stories of dropped catches, epic boxing bouts, eccentric French masters and dubious gastronomy! The Old Boys’ Cup was presented by Sir Rocco to the current Head Master, and will be awarded to one boy each year who has demonstrated the character and values of St Philip’s as voted for by his peers.

Thanks are extended to Fran Brunault, Olivia Armes, Sofie von Graevenitz and Nico Blackwood for their assistance in organising the event.
