Robinson News

  • It is with the deepest regret that the Warden, Fellows, Staff and Students of Robinson College heard of the passing of our founding Warden, Professor Lord Lewis of Newnham, FRS, on the evening of 17 July 2014.

    There will be a Memorial Service for Jack, as he was known to us all, in the College at a later date.  The College community will be advised of that once arrangements are further advanced.  Our thoughts and condolences are with the Lewis family at this difficult time.

  • In Robinson College Chapel with the Robinson College Chapel Choir and Organ Scholars and Visiting Choir Director, Tim Brown, and Robinson Fellow in Music, Jeremy Thurlow

    All former Robinson Choir members and Robinson alumni who currently sing with choirs in their community are invited to return to Robinson on Sunday 2 November 2014 to rehearse with the current Chapel Choir and sing together at the end of the afternoon in our annual Commemoration of Benefactors’ Service.  You are also welcome to bring singing and non-singing guests.

  • We are pleased to welcome back all those alumni who matriculated in 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004 and their guests, for dinner in College.


    Please note that booking for this event is now closed - we have over 220 people coming for the dinner, and so unfortunately can't take any late entries.


    On Saturday 27 September, pre-dinner drinks will be served on the Balcony from 7pm. Dinner will be served at 7.30pm.  The optional dress code is black tie.
