Events and Reunions


All alumni are welcome back to Sidney Sussex to attend our events and reunions. These provide an excellent opportunity to reminisce with old friends. We hope to meet you at an event in the near future. Our Communications and Events Officer, Ms Rhiannon Shaw (, is very happy to answer any questions about our events .

The services and concerts of the Choir of Sidney Sussex College are open to all, and Evensong is sung weekly on Fridays (6:30 pm) and Sundays (6:00 pm). Sidney also holds a lecture series each Michaelmas and Lent term which alumni are very welcome to attend; for more information, please follow the link to the Sidney Greats' page.
