A delightful evening at OGA summer event

12 June 2017

Edgbaston High School was delighted to welcome Old Girl and award-winning actress Martha Howe-Douglas back to school for the annual OGA Summer Supper on Wednesday 7 June.

The supper was preceded by pre-dinner drinks and Prep Hall was soon filled with the sound of laughter and chatter as almost 60 Old Girls, former and current staff and friends of EHS gathered for an evening of reminiscing.

After a delicious supper, Martha (1997) took the stage to address the gathering. Martha is the female star of CBBC’s Horrible Histories and has made numerous other theatre and television appearances including in ‘The Office’ alongside Ricky Gervais, the gripping BBC One drama ‘Doctor Foster’ and Sky 1’s smash hit fantasy comedy series ‘Yonderland’. She regaled the gathering with anecdotes about her school days and her career trajectory - keeping everyone thoroughly entertained! We thank Martha for giving of her time so generously.

This was an occasion to renew and make friendships, and it was fantastic to see so many guests in attendance, many of whom hadn’t returned to school since leaving EHS. Thank you to everyone who attended the supper; we loved having you and look forward to seeing you at a future OGA event!
