  • Robinson College’s Christmas Concert will take place in the Chapel on December 6th 2014.  As ever, we have arranged for the concert to fall on the last day that the undergraduates are in Cambridge before Christmas.  This concert has traditionally marked the start of the University vacation, and is an event to which parents, undergraduates, Fellows, friends and visitors are all warmly welcomed.


  • On Saturday, 20 September, Robinson welcomed the winners of our first ever essay prize competition for those in Year 12 of school to the College for a lunch and prize giving with Directors of Studies. There were two competitions this year: one a general essay prize for both Arts and Sciences and one a Medicine-specific prize. With over 40 applicants, the competition was fierce and the judges were greatly impressed with the overall standard of the essays. Our congratulations go to everyone who entered.

  • A memorial service will be held at 2pm on Saturday 28 February 2015 for Lord Lewis of Newnham, FRS, Founding Warden of Robinson College, Cambridge. Please indicate in advance if you wish to attend (see below).
