Girton College warmly invites those who matriculated in 1961, 1971, 1981 and 2011 to a virtual celebration on Saturday 18 September 2021 from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. 

For this virtual celebration, we will use a web-based platform called Spatial Chat. The Mistress will welcome all in the ‘main room’ for a toast and update from the College. You will then be able to join a separate ‘room’ for your matriculation year where you can reconnect with friends from your year for informal chats amongst yourselves. Login details for Spatial Chat will be sent to all event attendees closer to the event. 

You are invited to bring along a uniquely Girton cocktail, the Bas-Bleu. Secretary to Council, Dr Caroline Shenton, shows you in the video below how to make it, and explains why it is so special. There is a mocktail version too! 

Please do let us know if you are able to attend the virtual celebration by completing the online booking form or email

We very much hope that you can join us for this special occasion. Please do not hesitate to contact us on or (+44) 01223 764935 should you have any questions about the event in the meantime.
