Annual Dinner 2013

The RREF Annual Dinner 2013 has been set for Thursday 14 November at The Grange St Paul's Hotel, London, and booking is now open.

The Annual Dinner is the largest single-subject alumni event in the country and provides an invaluable opportunity for our graduates to network with industry contacts, reunite with old friends, hear all the news from fellow alumni and get updated on RREF's activities and projects - all while enjoying a delicious three-course meal at the stylish Grange St. Paul's Hotel. It is RREF's flagship event, drawing up to 500 guests each year, and raising funds to support out activities; its enduring popularity speaks to the quality of the experience.


Guests enjoy a champagne reception, followed by a delicious three-course meal and an exciting opportunity to win prizes in the raffle and fast-paced auction.

The funds raised from the evening support RREF activities, including student hardship funds, bursaries, the Access Internship scheme, and the Mentoring Programme, which recently won a University award.

The night is a wonderful networking opportunity for corporate guests, and all corporate table bookings will include having the company logo featured in the event programme, giving your company fantastic exposure to the RREF alumni network.

If you are an alumnus, the evening is the perfect chance to catch up and reconnect with friends from your graduating year. We have eight anniversary groups this year - 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, and 2008. If you are a graduate from an anniversary year, don't forget to contact your friends from Reading or ask RREF to put you in touch with your Year Rep to organise a table at the Dinner as the ideal way to celebrate and catch up with your fellow graduates.

If you would like to get back in touch with alumni from your year, contact us and your details will be passed to your Year Reps to be contacted. If you would like to organise a table at the Dinner or a reunion drinks group yourself, we would be delighted to assist you - just let us know what we can do to help.
