Guest List

Many alumni have told us that they like to see a list of people who have booked to attend events such as this one, as it can influence whether they choose to come. If you do not wish to have your name visible on this list, please email us to let us know (only alumni will be listed, not their guests). Please note also that the list will be updated manually  in batches, so your name may take some time to appear further to booking, and this does not imply that your booking has not been received.

Our booking form allows for additional donations, which will go directly to the 1979-84 bursary, as we begin fundraising to endow a full means-tested Cambridge Bursary named after your cohort.


Bed and breakfast accommodation in College is booked through the Speedybooker website rather than the College. Please note, as the event coincides with the end of period of residence, our limited availability has now been taken. We hope to be able to upload more rooms closer to the time (after mid-February).

A 10% discount is offered to attendees on the standard (already discounted) alumni room rates. Ensure that the special code KX54277 is entered in the top-left box next top where you enter the dates for your stay (not at the checkout). If a different rate is booked without the code, it cannot be changed to the discounted rate.

Please contact if you are looking for an earlier or later check-in or check-out date.

Amendments to bookings must be done via Speedybooker and cannot be made by College staff. Cancellations cannot be refunded less than 24h prior to your stay.

Book accommodation via Speedybooker


The event is free of charge to eligible alumni, and a maximum of one guest per attendee may be brought at your own expense. Use the drop-down boxes on the form below under ‘Quantity’ to select 1 alumni ticket, or 1 alumni ticket and 1 guest ticket. (Alumni couples should submit 2 booking forms to book 2 free tickets. Do let us know whether you wish to sit with your partner, or in different friendship groups, and bear in mind we don’t always know when alumni are a couple!) Bookings for this event will close at midnight on Sunday 10 March.

Please kindly note that due to our booking software, those bringing a guest may find themselves having to duplicate some information entry in order for the booking to proceed. We apologise for any annoyance caused, this is outside of our control whilst we wait for our database provider’s form upgrade, which will be much better!
