Alumni Weekend in North America April 2018

Date and time

6 Apr 2018 18:00 to 8 Apr 2018 16:00

This year Oxford University and Pembroke College are concentrating their Annual North American Reunion celebrations on the West Coast, in San Francisco. Andrew Seton and the Master, Dame Lynne Brindley DBE, will be visiting San Francisco for a number of University and College events from 5th - 8th April. This will be a particularly special visit, as it will be Andrew’s last big US ‘get-together’ in his capacity as Pembroke’s Strategic Development Director before he retires later this year. Joining the Master and Andrew Seton will be Professor Andy Orchard, one of Pembroke’s most distinguished academic Fellows and holder of the Oxford Chair of Anglo Saxon once held by J.R.R. Tolkien. 

We would be delighted if you are able to join us. BOOK HERE.
