You are all very much welcome to join us for an alumni drinks reception in London. It will be held on Friday 20 March at the Old Bank of England at 6:30pm to catch-up with staff and friends from the College of St Hild, Venerable Bede and Hild-Bede.

Friends are also welcome to join us and we do hope to see many of you there to share news of the College, to hear your thoughts on better furthering alumni relations.

Please register your attendance to the Old Bank of England pub on the booking tab.

We also have a very special side event that will begin at 5:00pm. Mr Christopher Drewitt has offered to give us an exclusive tour around a prestigious stable located in Central London. He is responsible for helping with the restoration and maintenance of some of the finest Victorian and Edwardian carriages. For security reasons, numbers will be limited, therefore, spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. This is a very special tour and definitely not one to be missed. If you would like to join the Principal and the Alumni Development Officer on this unique tour, please contact Stephanie Maurel by email at The address will be announced in a confirmation email.

Both events are free of charge.
