The 2019 Reunion will be on September 14th and 15th 2019 and held once again on the campus. Tickets will be available through the College website by mid-end February 2019.

The intention is to follow the same format as the event in 2016, certainly on the Saturday. On the Sunday there will probably be a "Heritage Open Day" from 11 AM onwards so as well as the traditional RHC70s reunion activities on Sunday there will be the opportunity to do a whole lot more throughout the day. There are a few details about the heritage day here - https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting/event/explore-royal-holloway

Discussions are well underway to establish the various costs so the ticket price can be set. We expect as a minimum an increase in price to reflect inflation but hopefully not too much more than that though some of the costs have increased by more.

We plan to have a open-mike event on the Saturday afternoon so if anyone has some desire to get up on a stage and perform then please let us know.

Overnight accommodation will be available again and this too will be available to book at the same time as the event tickets go on sale. For those that want to make a weekend of it then it will be possible to book rooms for the Friday night and/or Sunday night as well.

This part of the website will be updated as more details become available and once tickets are available to order then the mailshots will begin!!

Hopefully we will have an excellent turn-out this time for what will be the last event I organise.

 

This is the current list of tracks Pete Challinger has loaded and available for play at the reunion.  Some of these will be background music for the afternoon or the quiet areas and some won't get played at all - There's about 38 hours worth so it will be hard to squeeze them all in!  Hopefully the list brings back some memories.  If it's not on this list then I can't play it.  If you are aghast that a particular track is missing feel free to email Pete Challinger and he will see if he can add it.

The RHC70s 2013 reunion happened on 22nd /23rd June 2013. Several hundred alumni who spent their time at RHC between 1965 and 1985 attended  (a broad interpretation of a brief moment in time as befits the 70s). 1965 was the year that male undergraduates were admitted for the first time and 1985 was when RHC stopped being RHC and became RHBNC as a result of the merger with Bedford College in London. The reunion is an opportunity for all those alumni who spent time at the College when it was still called RHC and catered for both men and women to get together and reminisce.

To see details of the reunion and any photos taken you need to be logged in. Some of the planning information will remain here until I get round to tidying it up.

 

Well, its over now. If you were there on September 3rd and 4th you hopefully had a great time.

If you weren't there then you missed a classic.

It does mean that all the stuff that was here in the run-up to the reunion is now ready for the scrapheap but we will hopefully soon have a stack of photos and / or commentries that people want to add. There is also some 360 degree video that is being processed and will then be added to the site.

For those of you who went to the open-mic session and heard the recording that Peter Collins played of Sue Robertson singing "Travel On" and have asked to listen to a recording of it then you can play it here:

Play "Travel On" by Sue Robertson

If anyone out there has any idea where Sue Robertson (Physics 1970-3) is now it would be good to find out. I suppose I should really have her permission to play the recording on the site - so the reason for tracking her down is, of course, to seek that permission.

Many of you who were around in the late 60s and early 70s will remember Stuart Watson who was Social Secretary while he was a student.

You'll find a number of photos of him on the site -two of them are reproduced here along with the cover from his new book.

The book includes some pieces about his early years at Royal Holloway that some of you will find interesting.

You can find more information on his Facebook page and on his Stuart Watson website
