Alumni diary

As you will remember from your time as a Member there is always a wealth of activity going on at the College. Below you can find listed some of the upcoming events that are also open to Alumni, giving you the perfect reason to spend some time with us (even if just 'virtually').

Events in August

TEDxGoodenough College ‘Reshaping Realities’ – Saturday 7 August 14:00-19:30 at the Great Hall
Over the last year events such as COVID-19 and Brexit have combined to reshape our realities in new and surprising ways, so the ‘Reshaping Realities’ theme invites speakers to reflect, reimagine, and give shape to the brave new worlds ahead of us.
How to book: We have a small number of tickets still available for Alumni (price £30). Book online before Monday  2 August to secure your place.

Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artists Summer Performance – available online until 22 August 2021
The Jette Parker Young Artists Summer Performance is a chance to discover the stars of tomorrow and features two current members of Goodenough College, Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha (BBC Cardiff Singer of the World prize winner) and Filipe Manu. Celebrate Masabane and Filipe as they draw their time on the Jette Parker Young Artist programme (and at Goodenough College) to a close with the annual summer performance.

Coming soon

Alumni Homecoming Weekend 10-12 September 2021
Save the date! We are still finalising the programme but expect interesting talks, a quiz night, live music and a virtual tour of the College – all accessible from the comfort of your own home. We are also very excited to announce that we are planning to welcome local and visiting Alumni back into College for a drinks reception and chance to meet new Director, Alice Walpole, on the Friday evening.

Look out for more details about the events, times and how to register, coming soon.


This is a free programme of events for all our Alumni to enjoy.  However, we ask you to consider making a small voluntary donation here. As a charity, we  like many of you – are facing unprecedented challenges. Any support you can give will help us cover our essential costs. Many thanks.

Due to COVID-19, all face-to-face events at Goodenough College are postponed until further notice.
