Drama 50th Anniversary Event, University of Exeter - BOOKING NOW CLOSED

An Alumni and supporters event
Date1 - 2 September 2018
TimeEvent spans several days
PlaceStreatham Campus, Exeter

We invite all Exeter Drama alumni to celebrate 50 years of the department in Exeter on the weekend of 1-2 September 2018 for an assortment of nostalgia, merriment and looking forward.

We will operate an open house at our Thornlea site on the Saturday afternoon. Maybe you'd like to connect up with your University peers first - have lunch, hang out somewhere in the city that holds importance to you. Then check in with us at some point, have a glass of fizz, meet others, participate in some facilitated or un-facilitated reminiscence, meet some current students, take a tour of the Department as it is now... Relaxed activities will be happening throughout the afternoon, from 2pm-6pm, so you can put in an appearance whenever you like.

Then, on the Saturday evening, we've booked The Lemon Grove, a.k.a. The Lemmy, a.k.a. The Pit, from 6.30pm till late for more catching up with old friends, opportunities to make new ones, eating and drinking, cabaret, and dancing our way through 50 years of student music, from 1968 to 2018.

On the Sunday morning, we're planning to host a series of parallel, future-facing practical workshops and discussions about the future of Drama before coming back together for a final session that will finish by 2pm.

Event Schedule: 

Saturday 1st September
2pm – 6pm at Thornlea. Relaxed activities throughout the afternoon including a drink and tour.
6.30pm – late at the Lemon Grove. An evening of eating, drinking, cabaret, and dancing.

Sunday 2nd September
10am – 2pm at Thornlea. Practical workshops and discussions about the future of Drama followed by a final session.

How to book: Booking for this event has now closed. 

We really hope you are able to join us and you can understand that, due to the potentially large number of former student and staff attendees, unfortunately we won't be able to accommodate non-Drama alumni (including family members) at the weekend's events.
