Annual Alumni Reunion 2019

Saturday 7 September

For alumni of the University of Sheffield

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

We are delighted to be inviting all alumni back to the University for our thirteenth Annual Alumni Reunion, and in particular 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 welcome to bring guests who are not graduates of the University.

The Reunion ProgrammeRide the Paternoster

Guests can take part in a selection of daytime activities and tours and a delicious buffet lunch. In the evening, there will be a special celebration dinner in Firth Hall, with music from a live band for you to dance the night away to, as well as some added extras to make the event a memorable one!

Guests can select from any 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.
