Old boys of LGS and GSAL are welcome to attend The Old Leodiensians Annual London Dinner 2018 which will be held on Friday 16 March 2018 at:

The Travellers Club

106 Pall Mall,



The evening will commence with a drinks reception at 6.30pm.  Dinner will be served at 7.30pm. Dress code is lounge suits.

This year’s speaker is Professor Jon Blundy FRS  (OL79), igneous petrologist in the School of Earth Sciences at University of Bristol, where he has worked for almost 30 years.

After leaving Leeds Grammar School in 1979 he studied for a Bachelor’s degree in Geology at the University of Oxford (1983) and for a PhD at the University of Cambridge (1989). Jon is interested in all things magmatic, from magma generation in the crust and mantle to active volcanoes and hydrothermal copper mineralisation. He approaches his research using a combination of field observations, thermodynamics, microbeam analysis, and high pressure-temperature experiments. Jon has a number of research projects on volcanoes in the Cascades Range of the USA, Mexico, Chile, Bolivia, the Lesser Antilles, Vanuatu, Afar (Ethiopia) and Kamchatka.

He will be talking about his adventures in some of these remote, beautiful places and what they can teach us about the inner workings of our planet.
