Day tickets at £60 include access to all talks and panel discussions, including fringe events, up to 5pm.

Day and evening tickets at £220 include the above plus gala concert, drinks, dinner, evening entertainment and the 400 light show.

Talks and panel sessions will run from 10am – 5pm with lunch available between 12 noon and 2pm, and tea between 3 and 4:30pm. Speakers already confirmed include: Professor Sir Chris Whitty (Chief Medical Officer for England), Dr Elisabeth Kendall (Mistress Girton College Cambridge and Middle East commentator), Professor Ingmar Posner (co-founder of Oxa autonomous vehicle firm and machine learning specialist), Marianna Spring (BBC’s Disinformation Correspondent), Professor Kevin Talbot (Head of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Neuroscience), Patience Agbabi (renowned poet and performer) and Professor Amy Dickman (Director of Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Unit). 

Our fringe programme will feature an expert-led tour of the College gardens, behind-the-scenes visits to the wine cellar and College archives, an exhibition of our Pembroke 400 Characters, and reflections on our history. Alongside five minute pitches from students across the disciplines there will be something for everyone.

The Evening Gala Programme will begin with a world premiere performance of a Pembroke 400 commission by composer Tarik O’Regan, and move on to a Pembroke feast like no other, 17th Century music and dance in honour of our foundation year and a spectacular light show. Estimated end time 10.30pm.

We look forward to an exciting day celebrating 400 years of scholarship, global impact and community.
