Treasures from the MCS Archive

Wednesday 28 February, Magdalen College School, 6.30pm

OWs and Friends of MCS are invited to explore MCS history with our Archivist Lindsay McCormack and Director of the Waynflete Office Susie Baker. We will look at some of our top Treasures, ranging from OW John Foxe’s Book of Martyrs which dates back to 1583 and was considered to be the longest, most imposing and grammatically demanding book of its age, to OW Sam Mendes’ papers relating to his film American Beauty. We will also look at some of the beautiful portraits hanging in the Dining Hall of former Masters and other key School figures.

Cost: Free, guests are welcome

The Bob Stanier Society Lunch 2018

Saturday 12 May, from 11.45am, MCS, Oxford

All those planning to leave a bequest to MCS are warmly invited to join the Bob Stanier Society. Bob Stanier (Master 1944–67) had a huge impact on MCS, and his influence lives on in the spirit of the school today.

There is no charge for this event, and you are most welcome to bring a guest.
