On Thursday 25 May, over 30 alumni joined us at Rudds Bar in Blackfriars London, for our very first London Leicester on Tour. The evening was an opportunity for alumni to catch up, network, find out about the exciting ways they can get involved with the University of Leicester – and soak up some of the beautiful sunshine and weather we had last week.

Alumni gather for the very first Leicester on Tour London event!

If you’d like to help set up a London Alumni Chapter, please get in touch with Daniel via

Guests were welcomed with an arrival drink and were able to enjoy a light after-work buffet, whilst being able to chat amongst themselves in an intimate and exclusive space on the First Floor. Alumni shared experiences of their time at the University of Leicester, what they have done since graduation and their interest in creating a London Alumni Chapter, our newly launched programme.

Bill Friar, Director of the Development and Alumni Relations Office, welcomed alumni and talked about  our  exciting and ambitious plans to  establish Alumni Chapters in the UK and worldwide. Guests were invited to  get involved in what we hope will be a  friendly but productive  way of helping   alumni stay in touch, organising  local activities and events and helping promote the University in their local area.

Daniel Etherton (History of Art BA, 2015), a member of the Standing Committee of the Alumni Association, has already stepped forward to help establish a London Alumni Chapter and is eager to get as many alumni engaged as possible. Throughout the evening Daniel shared his vision of what he sees the chapter achieving;  by the end of the night there were already a number of guests signed up to his vision!

If you would like to join, or set up another chapter in your area, you can visit our Alumni Chapters section on the website here.
