On Saturday 1 July, as our 50th Anniversary draws to a close, we would like to welcome our alumni community to celebrate with us at an event on campus.
Last year, one of the first events to kick off our 50th Anniversary was our Alumni Celebration in September which saw over 200 former staff and students return to campus. We received some really positive feedback from the event and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more of our community back onto campus this year.
We want you to enjoy being back on campus and catch up with your class mates and make new contacts. Whilst socialising you’ll also be able to see a selection of archive materials from the 1960s to the present day, there will be opportunities to buy the latest range of University merchandise and our 50th Anniversary book, and for those of you who haven’t been back on campus for a while you will have the opportunity to go on a campus tour with one of our current student ambassadors.
We also have the exciting news that former SU President Mark Dolby will be showcasing his Faces of Leeds Trinity photography exhibition at the event. This is Mark’s own project featuring pictures and quotes from many of our distinguished alumni.
As always, we love hearing about your favourite memories and have shared many of these throughout the year on our 50th Anniversary website – so during the event you’ll be able to share your memories on postcards or you can record a message on camera.
6.30pm: Event begins in The Lounge Bar
7.15pm: Free time and opportunity to socialise, view displays, go on a campus tour
8.30pm: Music begins (DJ)
Midnight: Event closes
It is free to attend the event, but it is essential to book through Eventbrite as places are limited.
If you would like to, when you book your place you can choose to have your name, course and graduation year listed on our 50th Anniversary Alumni Reunion webpage so other attendees can see who is coming. We’d advise all attendees to visit our webpage so you can get an idea of how many people from your year group are attending.
