        Filming and photography

There is often filming and photography at events, which may be shared on the College’s website and social media, and also on the Sidney Flickr account (which can be viewed by the general public).

Any guests who do not wish to be filmed or photographed should inform a member of the Development and Alumni Relations Office on the day or email before the event.

       Amendments to alumni events

Once you have booked for an event online, our system does not allow changes to be made to your booking form or personal details.

Should you wish to amend your booking, please contact

       Event cancellations and ticket reallocation

Cancellations can be made by phone, post, or e-mail. Where an event is over subscribed any unwanted tickets must be returned to the Development Office so that they can be offered to the next person on the waiting list.

If your booking was made online please enclose a copy of your original receipt or confirmation e-mail including your reference number.


Refunds will not usually be issued for cancellations after the closing date for the event has passed or for non-attendance on the day.

Regrettably, we cannot refund guests when bad weather prevents or discourages travel.

All refund requests must be made by the person who made the original booking or the credit/debit card holder.

Please contact the Development and Alumni Relations Office in writing (by e-mail or post) if you wish to enquire about a refund.

Should circumstances arise which cause an event to be postponed, guests will have the option to either receive a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at any new date.
