Dunelm Days Events 2016

Durham alumni and guests were invited to celebrate all things Durham by being a part of Dunelm Days 2016.

2016 marks a major milestone in the history of alumni relations at Durham, the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the first Durham University alumni society, which formed on 31 May 1866. Alumni, friends and supporters have been fundamental in shaping Durham University in to what it is today, and we invite you to celebrate this landmark of 150 years of alumni support.

To mark this anniversary, the Development and Alumni Relations Office asked alumni around the world to celebrate with us during the month of June as part of Dunelm Days. Whether you are already a part of a Durham alumni network, or are looking to make new connections, Dunelm Days is the ideal opportunity to join a global celebration of what it means to be Durham alumni and share memories of your time at Durham.

Alumni volunteers around the world are currently planning their Dunelm Days events, please check back here regularly for updates on events when they confirm.
If you can’t see a listing for an event near you, why not host your own!? If you would like further information, please contact Lauren Storey on 0191 334 6309 or alumni.volunteer@durham.ac.uk.
