London Dinner 2018

This year's London gathering of Methody past pupils will be on Friday 8th February. 

This is an annual get together for past pupils from all years. Husbands, wives, partners, Belfast members and international members are all very welcome. The dress code is lounge suits or black tie.

We gather from 6.30 for drinks, going into dinner around 7.30. Over coffee we hear from the Headmaster (Scott Naismith), and will then learn about the events planned to celebrate Methody's 150th anniversary. The anniversary celebrations are following the original pupils through their first year, so running from September 2018 to June 2019.

The venue is a minute from Waterloo station, at the Union Jack Club.

The price is held at £55 a head, with a cash bar throughout the evening. For past pupils still under 30, there is a special price of £40 each.

(Please note, we don't issue tickets, and we do need to give final names to the venue a day or two before the event).

MCB Class of 1967 Reunion – September 2017

It was 50 years ago today, Sergeant Pepper taught his band to play…

Well not exactly, but 50 years ago in 1967, as well as the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper, Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision Song Contest, ‘The Prisoner’ with Patrick McGoohan was on TV, Harold Wilson devalued the Pound (“This will not affect the Pound in your pocket…”),  - and Foinavon won the Grand National at 100:1

And for many of us, 1967 was the year when we sat our A-levels, and left MCB, for pastures new…..Please click here to read more

Celebration of Boarding

A Big Thank You to everyone who attended the Celebration of Boarding events July 2nd & 3rd and August 27th & 28th 2010. It was lovely to meet so many of you, to hear your stories about your time in boarding and to see you enjoy meeting up with old friends.

Boarding at Methody

The long tradition of boarding at Methody sadly came to an end in June 2010. This was an unprecedented occasion in the life of the College and the organisation of a suitable event to commemorate and celebrate the contribution of the boarding departments was quite the challenge!

In the end, two events were organised, taking place in the summer months. The first event took place over the first weekend in July and was well attended by about 100 former boarders. Friendships were renewed and memories shared, and although bittersweet, many former pupils expressed their joy at being able to revisit the College. Similar numbers attended on the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August and a lovely time was had by those who attended.

Please click on the links below to have a look at the contact sheets of photographs taken at the July event and a PDF File containing some of the photographs taken at the August weekend. These are available to buy from the photographer.

Class of 1980 Reunion 

'If you thought the Class of '80 had forgotten that 30 year anniversary mark, you would be wrong!  Through the major social networking sites we raised enough interest to hold a hooley on Saturday 5th November at Belfast Harlequins.  

The Class of 1980 recently held a reunion - please click to read the report of this very successful evening.
