The Rugby Estate Day in London on April 28 drew a large audience of invited guests to witness the official unveiling of the plaque by AN Wilson (M 64-68) in memory of our founder, Lawrence Sheriff, and to enjoy the Lamb's Conduit Street Festival.
A splendid 450th Birthday Cake in the shape of 'Rugby School' presented by the Ciao Bella Restaurant was cut by Lucinda Holmes, Chairman of Governors, and together with 450 cup cakes, had been completely consumed by the end of the day. The School Corps of Drums drew an admiring crowd as they marched in Rugby Street, and further music was provided by the School during the afternoon.
Mr Wilson also got the chance to play a sideways pass to Camden's deputy mayor, councillor Richard Cotton, as part of the Global Pass.
A special 'Welcome to Lamb's Conduit Street' booklet has been created as a gift from the Rugby Estate to the traders, which highlights the community spirit within this special part of London. To view the brochure click here.
