Black ties and posh frocks were in evidence at the 2010 University of Leicester Alumni Dinner, held on Thursday 18 February in the swanky surroundings of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London.

More than 175 alumni made it through the snow to join Vice Chancellor Professor Sir Robert Burgess and other members of the University’s staff and Council. Attendees’ graduation dates ranged from recent years back to the 1950s and some had travelled from as far afield as Nigeria and Israel to be there.

There were lots of happy reunions, more than £3,800 was raised for the Percy Gee Building Appeal and at least one lady spotted herself, circa 1970s, on one of our ‘lost alumni’ posters!
