Date(s) - Saturday 16 November 2019
7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The dinner is open to all continuing undergraduate students. Guests must be aged 18 years or over. 

The evening begins at 7.00 pm with a drinks reception in the Fellows’ Drawing Rooms, 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 Fellows’ Drawing Rooms. 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 Brigadier 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’.
