Regular Events

We have regular informal gatherings to allow Oxford and Cambridge alumni to meet others living in their area for conversation, drinks, dinner, whatever is desired. Anyone with an Oxford or Cambridge connection is welcome, no matter whether an expatriate working here or a Dutch former Oxbridge student. If you wish, you can contact someone on the committee to find out more about the plans or the locations, but otherwise feel free just to turn up.
