All alumni are cordially invited to all, or part of, the weekend which is traditionally of especial interest to those year groups who celebrate the anniversary of their graduation. So, calling all those of you who graduated in a year ending in 7, why not organise your own ‘Class Of’ Reunion? And for the graduates of 1987, please read on for your particular invitation … Hild Bede Class of '87 reuniting: 'It’s been 30 years (29 for BEds and languages) since we collected our gowns. Most of us have kept in touch with some people, but rarely seen the majority. 30 years on, some of us are planning to reconnect on Saturday, 1 July 2017 in London over lunch - and at the Hild Bede Alumni College. We’d love to see as many alumni as we can - we’ve set up a Facebook group where you can find out who else is coming and let us know in which event(s) you are interested. If you’re not on Facebook, you can let us know by emailing Hope to see you there!
