Celebrate 50 years of Botany
As you may be aware, 2019 is the 50th anniversary of masters' botany teaching at the University of Reading and over 100 years of Reading botany more broadly.
We are celebrating this milestone with a year of events under the umbrella title of Reading Botany 2019. More information about the wider celebrations can be found here and we will be updating the site as the year progresses.
Our main botanical alumnus event is the Reading Botany Reunion Party. This event will take place in the Meadow Suite on the Whiteknights campus from 13.00 on Saturday 27 July 2019.
We anticipate many staff will attend this special event, with guests of honour Vernon Heywood and Peter Crane already confirmed. There will also be many past and present students attending and it will be a happy botanical celebration with a BBQ, a cash bar and events such as a specially curated botany spot test to bring back happy memories.
Tickets for the event are just £25 per person and include a BBQ and welcome drink. The BBQ will end at 17.00, however celebrations will continue into the evening, with the bar closing at midnight. Don't miss out - click here to register. Please note booking closes on Tuesday 9 July 2019.
