We were delighted to welcome more than 100 past and present colleagues to our second London alumni reception in May.

It was a great evening, providing a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends over drinks, delicious canapés, cheeses and some colourful desserts.

The event was held on the fourth floor of the office and guests were able to browse and enjoy the exhibited paintings of prize-winning abstract artist, Alexis Harding, in the third of a series of exhibitions in our ongoing collaboration with Coombs Contemporary and artist and curator Daniel Coombs.

Chairman Nigel Thomas welcomed guests and Founding Partner, Martin Watson, gave a short address, paying tribute to the contribution of WFW people past, present and future who continue to make the firm such a success, a sentiment echoed in a message from Alastair Farley, who was unable to attend and which Martin read on his behalf. It was a great evening and you can log in with password (wfwalumni19!) to see the photos here.

Here’s what some of our guests said:

“I believe the Alumni idea is inspired and will reap benefits for the firm. Not least by generating goodwill and reminding all of us that it has always been a privilege to be part of WFW.”

“It’s a great event, our alumni guests really enjoyed it.”

“Everyone who attended commented how enjoyable the evening was.”

"I believe the Alumni idea is inspired and will reap benefits for the firm."

“Thanks to WFW for a very enjoyable alumni reception last night. It was very strange coming back into the building after 20 years but it was great to see many familiar faces.”

“Many thanks for a very enjoyable evening yesterday. It was fun to be back in the office (after a mere 18 years away!) and to catch up with some old friends. Very much looking forward to the next event already and a few of us were plotting how to get in touch with various contemporaries from our early days to secure their appearances.”
