Friday 26th May 2023 marked 400 days until the 400th anniversary of the signing of the Pembroke charter by King James I.
Plans are shaping up to celebrate this Pembroke milestone and we hope that all members of our community will want to take part - no matter where you are in the world! Read on to find out how you can get involved and join with other Pembrokians to celebrate 400 years of Pembroke in 2024.
We have planned a full calendar of events for 2024 and hope to see as many alumni and friends as possible during the year.
From decade reunions to subject dinners, via the garden party, a grand research festival and special themed evenings, there's something for everyone.
400 Characters is a celebration of the people of Pembroke’s first four centuries, in just 400 characters.
As we look ahead to the next chapter of the College’s life, this digital gallery reflects the unique experiences of those members who have made up this community in times past and today.
We will be adding more characters each month throughout our anniversary year together with an exhibition in the JCR Art Gallery next summer. Please keep sending in your nominations.
