On the Sunday of the reunion there will be a breakfast in Founders (for those who have booked accommodation using the RHC70s booking code) and hopefully an opportunity to get a group photo on the steps in South Quad (weather permitting). Tea and coffee will then be available in the Herringham Room (regardless of whether you stayed overnight) but you may also want to grab your tickets for some of the activities going on as part of the Heritage Open Day - most of these activities are for limited numbers and you need to get a ticket for an appropriate time-slot.
Some things you'll have had the opportunity to do on the Saturday but if you want to hear the PG talks or visit the Sanatorium then you need to book on the day. The Sanatorium is worth a look (if you've not seen it before) but it is off-campus near Virginia Water Railway station so probably best to get a time slot for when you plan to be leaving for home to avoid having to travel there AND back.
The Open day starts at 11 and end at 5.
