Annual Alumni Reunion 2019

Saturday 7 September

For all alumni of the University of Sheffield

Anniversary Years – `79, '89, '94, '99

We are delighted to be inviting our alumni back to the University for our twelfth Annual Alumni Reunion and especially those who are celebrating 40, 30, 25 and 20 years since graduating.

The reunion is a unique opportunity to meet up with old friends and see how Sheffield has changed. Alumni are very welcome to bring guests who are not graduates of the University.

The Reunion ProgrammeRide the Paternoster

Alumni returning to Sheffield can take part in a selection of daytime activities and tours, including a delicious buffet lunch. In the evening, we are pleased to announce we are holding a special celebration dinner in Firth Hall, with music from a live band for you to dance the night away with friends, as well as some added extras to make the event a memorable one!

Guests are free to select which parts of the day they would like to attend. Tours and talks are free of charge, but charges do apply for lunch and dinner. There is also a charge for the Pop Tarts Reunited club night should you not attend the dinner.

Please see an indicative running order for the day below, though please note these details are still subject to change.
