Alumnae Weekend

As part of the University-wide Alumni Festival Lucy Cavendish is organising a number of events for alumnae.

Friday 23rd September

Older and wiser: how women over 50 are making their mark - Newnham College, 4pm - 5.45pm

Once again, Lucy Cavendish is collaborating with Murray Edwards and Newnham on a special event entitled 'Older and wiser: how women over 50 are making their mark'. President of Lucy Cavendish, Jackie Ashley, will take to the stage along with Professor Dame Carol Black (Newnham) and Dame Barbara Stocking (Murray Edwards) to share their own personal experiences and will be joined by alumnae who have made equally interesting decisions. Suzanne McCarthy will accompany the panel, as an alumna of Lucy Cavendish. The audience is encouraged to contribute their own thoughts and views to the discussion. 

Unfortunately this event has now sold out.

Saturday 24th September
