1966 and 1981 Matriculation Years: Anniversary Reunion Evening Dinner 

Please join us in Clough Hall, catch up with old friends and enjoy returning to Newnham. 

We are delighted to invite all alumnae who matriculated in 1966 and 1981 to return to Newnham for dinner in Clough Hall in celebration of the anniversary of your matriculation.  We do hope you will be able to join us to mark this special occasion.

As is tradition our reunion is taking place in parallel with the University’s Alumni Festival. The University’s events will remain online this year but we are pleased to be able to welcome you back in person to College.  To allow for a bit more spacing at dinner we have split the event over two evenings with a dinner taking place on both the Friday and Saturday evenings.  We have kept reunion year groups together – with 1966 and 1981 invited on the Friday and 1991 and 2001 on Saturday.

Principal Alison Rose will open the event with welcome drinks from 6:30pm, followed by a three-course dinner in Clough Hall at 7:30pm. To book your place at dinner please use the form below. The evening will cost £48 per guest.

You are welcome to bring a guest, places are limited so please do book your place in plenty of time. Bookings will close Thursday 16th September. Library and Garden tours will be available to book on arrival for Saturday morning.

There are limited B&B rooms available in college for £105, double en-suite and £95 for a single en-suite. Bookings can be made when you buy your ticket using the form, please note that due to restrictions this year, we can only offer you a room on the night of your dinner.  

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Roll and Development Office on 01223 335757 or email  

We look forward to welcoming you back to Newnham to enjoy your anniversary reunion with your friends and contemporaries. Please do pass this invitation on to anyone in your year who may have fallen out of touch with College, and encourage them to get in touch with us.
