Guests enjoyed the opportunity to network and mingle, as well as hearing from the Headmaster and former pupil, Alastair Bruce, on life at Milton Abbey, past and present. The winner of the School's Entrepreneur in Residence competition this year, Oliver Sykes, was also present at the event with a stall promoting his winning business, Cracking Spirit. This gave guests the opportunity to try caipirinha cocktails made from the Brazilian sugarcane spirit Cachaca, which Oliver is promoting ahead of this year's Rio Olympics. In his speech, Alastair Bruce highlighted the enterprising spirit that runs through the School's history and applauded Oliver as one of the next generation of entrepreneurs. The evening was highlighly successful and thoroughly enjoyable, and we thank all who attended. Visit our Image Gallery to view photographs from the evening.
