St Cuthbert's Society Alumni Weekend: Celebrating 125 Years of St Cuthbert's Society Boat Club

12 South Bailey, Durham

Join us in Durham this September for this year’s Alumni Weekend!

St Cuthbert's Alumni Association and St Cuthbert's Society Boat Club are working together to bring you a truly memorable weekend that celebrates the 125th Anniversary of the Boat Club!

It promises to be a spectacular weekend for all alumni across the generations. We hope to host over 100 Cuth's alumni - rowers and non-rowers alike - for a weekend of celebrating in true Cuth's fashion! The Alumni Weekend is the perfect opportunity to catch up with your housemates, course mates, old boats and crew members, or friends with whom you have just lost touch despite best efforts.

Tickets for the weekend will be available soon. In the meantime, let us know you're coming and be the first to hear about plans as they are announced by registering your details here.
