Alumni Weekend 2016


Alumni Weekend 2016

As part of our wider 50th Anniversary celebrations, this summer saw us celebrate 50+ years of fantastic students at our Alumni Weekend here on campus on 2 & 3 July 2016. We were thrilled to welcome back over 1000 alumni to reunite with classmates and join us for a range of activities including live music, drinks receptions, a roller disco, poetry takeaway van, funfair stalls, academic talks and a silent disco. We were excited to play host to a sold-out comedy night - Live at Brunel with Jo Brand - and showcase music from alumni band, The Blimey O’Rileys, in a closing celebration of the weekend. Our Sports Day saw lots of action, with highlights including the reunion of our 80s football teams and a lively game of Wheelchair Basketball with Ambassadors vs Alumni.

It was a real pleasure to see so many Brunelians with their friends and families on campus reminiscing and sharing their stories of student days. If you’d like to take a peek at some of the pictures captured at the event, head on over to our albums on Flickr and Facebook to take a look at a host of special moments. We also have a video - take a trip over to YouTube to watch our footage from the day!

We’d love to hear your tales from the day and from your time here as a Brunel student - if you’d like to upload a memory and share your tales from back in the day, or from the Alumni Weekend, visit our 50th Anniversary Website to leave your mark.

If was great to see so many of you, but if you weren’t able to join us, we’ll hopefully see you soon for some of our future events. And if you’re keen to set up your own reunion, let us know if we can help - drop us an email at
