Digital Alumni Week

We are delighted to announce our first, fully online King’s Digital Alumni Week, taking place between 22nd - 26th September 2020.

We hope that College Members and guests can listen, watch and take part in an exciting week of events wherever you are in the world; and that this online gathering will allow a large number of alumni, including those who haven't attended a College event for some time, to reconnect with the King’s College community.

The varied programme consists 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; 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.

To find out more and to sign up to attend, please see the full programme below. Times and events have been chosen to allow as many alumni as possible from around the world to join us. Live session times are in BST (GMT +1); every live session will also be recorded and uploaded to the College website for those who miss it. All the events are completely free of charge to join. Please note that further events will be added as we get closer to the Alumni Week so do keep an eye on the programme, to find out about any updates.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us for what we anticipate will be a very special King’s Alumni Week.

All live events require registration using the register button on the each event page and are accessed through Zoom. Pre-recorded videos and content will be uploaded in the morning on the specified day. Please email events@kings.cam.ac.uk, should you need any technical assistance.
