The College provides a varied and extensive programme of events each year for our Alumni, Students, Parents & Friends, as well as the general public. Our ever growing events calendar includes events outside of Oxford in other parts of the UK, as well as overseas. We warmly welcome feedback, as well as new, innovative ideas and contributions that can help expand our events programme.

We are increasingly sending event invitations via email, therefore please ensure that we have an up to date email address for you. Alternatively, please do let us know if you are not on email, and we will be very happy to send you postal invitations. In general, event invitations are sent 3 months in advance.

Please note our events are photographed and images may be used in our media; including, without limitation, in printed publications, presentations, promotional material, online (including our Social Media channels), in their original format or edited or altered in any way. If you have concerns about your image being used for these purposes, or would prefer to not have your photo taken, please contact a member of the Development Office.
