Students and Parents dinner 2019

The dinner is open to all continuing Girton College undergraduate students ONLY.

Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served, basis. Guests must be aged 18 years or over. Please be aware that tickets generally sell out very quickly and usually before the start of Michaelmas term

The evening begins at 7.00 pm with a drinks reception in the Stanley Library, and is followed by a 3-course dinner, with wine (including non-alcoholic wine), in the Hall at 7.45 pm. We conclude with tea/coffee and conversation in the Stanley Library. The dress code is lounge suits/smart. Gowns are not worn.

This 150th anniversary year, the event will engage with some important student-led diversity initiatives, reflecting the extent to which Girton was founded for inclusion and is an advocate of widening participation. We are delighted to welcome as after dinner speakers Major General Peter Cameron OBE (read Land Economy, 1984), Former Senior Diversity Advocate for the Royal Navy Compass Network, and active LGBT+ advocate, and Patricia Cumper MBE (read Archaeology and Anthropology, 1973), award-winning playwright, producer, director, arts administration and culture leader, also an advocate for BAME arts. They are both alumni of the College and each will provide a perspective on that important transition from undergraduate days to ‘Life After Girton’.
