London Chapter: An Evening at the Tate Modern
After the hugely successful London Alumni Chapter launch event at the Ruby Blue Bar in Leicester Square in September, the latest event proved to be just as popular. We were joined by 64 alumni at the Tate Modern on Friday 24 January. Guests had the opportunity to meet up with old friends, network with other alumni and hear about some of the exciting news and progress made by the University over the last few months.
The drinks reception was hosted in the Terrace Bar, while guests also had the opportunity to explore the wealth of exhibitions and collections that the Tate Modern has to offer. London Chapter Steering Group Lead, Dr Aaron Porter was joined by the Alumni Association Committee Vice-Chair Lynda Wight in welcoming guests to the event. Esua Goldsmith (Combined Studies BA 1975; PGCE 1977; Honorary Doctor of Laws 2015) provided a fascinating insight into the launch of her new memoir, The Space Between Black and White, with special reference to the University of Leicester and the Students’ Union.
Planning for the next London Alumni Chapter event is already underway, so make sure to update your details to ensure we can stay in touch with you.
