Alumni Festival Centre

  • Alumni Festival team behind reception table

Sitting at the heart of the Sidgwick Site, the Festival Centre is home to the help desk, registrations, bookings and refreshments. It's a great place to relax, meet friends old and new, and discuss sessions.

What is the Festival Centre?

The Festival Centre is located in a marquee on the Sidgwick Site's Raised Faculty Building lawn. The team will be based here during the festival to answer your questions. Some sessions may also be available to book while on site.

We encourage guests to bring along a resuable drinks bottle or reusable mug which can be refilled free of charge at the water coolers or hot drinks station in the Centre.
