On Wednesday 4th October we celebrated the 86th anniversary of the opening of Goodenough College by our Founder, Frederick Craufurd Goodenough. To quote from our history: ‘Time begins on 4th October 1931, the day on which the first residents of London House arrived’.
Each year at around this time the College becomes one of the ‘hubs’ of the famous Bloomsbury Festival. This festival features a host of amazing events many of which are hosted by Goodenough College and take place either in London House or William Goodenough House.
Goodenough College has again been recognised in the 2018 National Student Housing Survey.
The Spring 2016 edition of Goodenough News invited alumni and friends to name 30 new chairs for the Great Hall.
We are delighted to report that we have now received both the new and refurbished chairs ready for use by the next intake of new members!
On Friday 14th July, Goodenough College was pleased to welcome over 200 of our alumni for the annual Alumni Reception.
On Tuesday 21st March, Goodenough College and Julius Meinl celebrated World Poetry Day by encouraging members to visit Freddie’s to recite poetry and be rewarded with a coffee.
On 25 & 26 March at 8pm, Bloomsbury Opera opened the doors of Goodenough College’s Great Hall and invited the outside world to step into Tahiti!, a double bill in which Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti was prefaced by the world premiere of Pacific Pleasures, a new opera by Alannah Marie Halay on a libretto by Jorge Balça.
