Geography Afternoon Tea

Date(s) - Saturday 15 February 2020
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Girton College


The Girton Geographical Society Co-Presidents, Olly Tapper, Shamem Faizi and Laura Stokes warmly invite all Geography alumni, Fellows and current students to attend the biennial Geographical Society Event. This year, in response to feedback, we are changing the format of the reunion and making it a fantastic Afternoon Tea Party instead of a dinner.

Programme and tickets
The event will start with drinks and a photographic exhibition in the Fellows’ Rooms at 2.00pm followed by dissertation talks from current students. Following this, there will be a session reflecting on Geography over the years and a delicious afternoon tea. The event finishes around 5.00pm. You are more than welcome to arrive earlier in the day to enjoy self-guided garden and building tours, the People’s Portraits exhibition and our new Social Hub café bar.

The price for the afternoon tea is £20.00 per person and you are welcome to bring up to three guests*. Current Geography students receive a small subsidy from this price. To make a booking for the event please use the online booking and payment facility below. Alternatively, reservations can be made over the phone by calling +44 (0)1223 764935. The closing date for applications is Friday 7 February 2020.
