News and events submission form

This form is for submitting information about news and events for/in St John's College, for one or more of the following purposes:

  • to supplement a room booking form for an event which needs consideration by College Officers (external bookings or events with external speakers)
  • for entry on the College news section online
  • for entry on the College events calendar online
  • for inclusion in the weekly College email newsletter (sent to all current members)
  • for publication on the College blog John's Chronicle
  • for promotion on College social media channels.

Submission of the form does not mean automatic inclusion in any of the above – someone in our staff team will consider if the information submitted is relevant for the offical College channels, and may get back to you with further questions or suggestions. Please note that this is not a room booking form – for rooms for events, you must first submit a room booking form on John's Online.

Organiser

If you are filling this in on behalf of the lead organiser, write your name, then "on behalf of" and their name.

This should be the email address for any internal communication about the event.

Please confirm the name of your organisation, department or society (e.g. Durham University Photo Society, or University College, or Teach First).

If your organisation has a website, please provide the web address URL.  Not required for internal St John's College bookings.
