All those who matriculated in 1970 are invited back to College to celebrate 50 years since arriving at Trinity Hall. You are warmly invited to bring a guest.


The main event starts with an optional light buffet lunch.
Following lunch there will be the opportunity to visit the Old Library.
The formal events in the evening will begin with a group photograph followed by a drinks reception and a four course dinner in Hall.

Dress code for the evening will be smart (black tie optional).

Further items will be added to the programme and will be confirmed in the information sent to you the week before the event.


Accommodation will be available for the Friday and Saturday nights. This will be in –

  • single student rooms on Central Site (£45 Bed & Breakfast)
  • single ensuite rooms at Wychfield (£50 room only | £60 Bed & Breakfast)
  • double ensuite rooms at WYNG Gardens on Thompson’s Lane (£100 Bed & Breakfast)

If you wish to stay overnight, please choose your preferred option when booking.

There will be some parking spaces available at our Wychfield site. These cannot be reserved and will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. Alternative parking options will be included with the final information, which will be sent to those coming the week before the event. If you do park at Wychfield, you can either walk to College, which takes around 20 minutes, or the Porter on duty can call you a taxi to bring you down to Central Site. The Wychfield Gardens are worth a visit if you have some spare time.
