Double Blue Ball 2018 – ‘THE OSCARS’

144 years ago, Rev. Samuel R. Wilkin and Rev. D. Henry Pereira, the Founding Fathers of Wesley College Colombo, established the leading Christian Methodist Boys School in Colombo. Throughout the years Wesley College has produced statesmen, national heroes, diplomats, great scholars, medical and legal luminaries, professionals, bankers, sportsmen, internationally acclaimed musicians, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and many distinguished personalities in Sri Lanka.

The Old Boys of Wesley College Colombo (OBU) and the Old Wesleyites Sports Club (OWSC) get together every year to present the Double Blue Ball.

This Event is one that is much awaited and looked forward to in both the OBU /OWSC calendars where Old Boys of Wesley College, in Sri Lanka and Overseas, come together in true Double Blue Spirit, to bond and enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie, which go beyond the borders and barriers of religion, language and race, which is the Hallmark of the Wesley Spirit and Tradition.

The ‘Double Blue Ball’ which is the most glamorous event of the OBU/OWSC, will be held on 17th Saturday, November 2018 at the Cinnamon Grand Ballroom, from 8 pm with two leading ‘Bands, Misty and Black’ providing the music.

Comperes Jimmy Deen and Trishma Pinto will be the hosts for the evening. The co- chairpersons of the 2018 Double Blue Ball Dance Committee are Divakar Ratnadurai and Dharshana Liyanage.
