We look forward to being able to welcome you back to Sidney for our reunions and other events.

Forthcoming events: 

Sidney Sussex Society visit to Westminster Abbey and drinks reception

Following an exciting Lent Term programme and ahead of their tour to the United States this summer, the Choir of Sidney Sussex College will be singing evensong at Westminster Abbey on Thursday 21 April 2022. Evensong will begin at 5.00 pm and, in order to be seated, guests should arrive for 4.45 pm. This will be followed by a short service and the laying of a wreath at the tomb of our Foundress, Lady Frances Sidney.

We would be delighted to welcome both those who attended evensong, as well as those who were not able to join us, to a drinks reception from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm at The Old Star, 66 Broadway, London, SW1H 0DB; a short walk from Westminster Abbey. Tickets for the drinks reception are £33 per person and include two free drinks plus a finger buffet, with a cash bar thereafter.

Please note that tickets for both portions of the day must be reserved in advance and booking will close at midday on Thursday 7 April.

Make your reservation here.
