Join us for an evening of history as we celebrate the site of Harrow Arts Centre, formerly and fondly known as Royal Pinner School.
The Royal Commercial Traveller's Schools were opened by HRH Prince Albert in 1855. Royal Pinner School closed in 1967, and in 1988, the site became known as the Harrow Arts Centre that we know and visit today. Old Mercurians was set up by former students of Royal Pinner school, to maintain and celebrate the history of the site.
Michael Sprange, a student from 1951 – 1956, and Delia Matthews, a student from 1964 until its closure in 1967, will speak on their fond memories of the school as children, the rich history that it holds, and its journey from a School to an Arts Centre.
A Q&A session will also be held, so feel free to bring your questions! (in-person questions only)
