Sold Out
Guest speaker: Sir Thomas Allen, Chancellor

Thursday 4 November 2021, 7pm (GMT)

We're sorry this event is now sold out.

This year’s annual dinner in London will be held at the prestigious Caledonian Club in London’s Belgravia. All Durham University alumni are welcome. Our guest speaker will be the Chancellor of Durham University, Sir Thomas Allen, CBE. Champagne will be served before the three-course dinner from 7.00pm. The evening is due to end at around 10.15pm.

The dinner will be preceded by Convocation which will be a presentation by the new Vice Chancellor on latest development at Durham University. Please note you need to book separately for this event on-line. This event will start at 5.30 pm.

As this is our first special event after extended periods of lockdown the dress code will be : black tie preferred (which means you are welcome to wear black tie or evening dress but if you would prefer to attend in a suit and tie or business attire that is fine too).

There is no charge for attending Convocation and the price of the dinner is £90 per head – or £60 per head if you graduated in the last four years. This ticket price includes: a champagne reception, and three course meal with wine and coffee.

The Dunelm Society is grateful to Professor David Ellery for hosting this event at the Caledonian Club, 9 Halkin Street, Belgravia.

* In the event that we are unable to hold the dinner under Covid regulations we can either hold your ticket payments until a postponed date or arrange for a refund.
