Digital Alumni Week

Digital Alumni Week

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first King’s Digital Alumni Week.

More than 1,700 College Members and guests from 28 countries around the world listened to, watched and took part in an exciting week of events.

The varied programme consisted of a mixture of live and pre-recorded sessions, including an exploration of the King’s wildflower meadow with Head Gardener Steven Coghill; research talks from leading academics; Zadie Smith in conversation with Professor Peter de Bolla; an organ recital live from the Chapel, given by Director of Music Daniel Hyde; and a King’s update and Q&A session with the Provost, First Bursar and Senior Tutor.

If you missed a session or would like to watch again, all the sessions were recorded and we will be adding more links over the coming days.
