Join us in central London for an evening of discussion at The Courtauld Institute of Art, home to the world-famous Courtauld Gallery. The theme for this year's event is Women in Politics and we are delighted to announce our speakers. 

Heidi Allen, MP for South Cambridgeshire, will be joined by Belinda Phipps, Chair of the Fawcett Society - the leading charity campaigning for gender equality and women's rights - and Tunbridge Wells councillor Catherine Rankin (NH 1974). The President, Dame Barbara Stocking, will host the evening and chair the discussion. The President will also give an update on the College and how we play a pivotal role in the lives of women through education.

We are pleased to offer complimentary access* to the world-famous Courtauld Gallery from 5pm to any alumnae and guests who book for this College event.
The event will conclude with a reception with drinks and canapés.

We hope you will join alumnae from around the world to reconnect with the College in a global celebration of women.

*Any guests wishing to take advantage of this offer will need to arrive at the Courtauld Gallery between 5pm and 5.30pm (last entry), and will be able to remain in the Gallery until it closes at 6pm. Please note you can only take up this offer if you have booked to attend the evening event.
