HOUSE OF LORDS 2016
We were delighted that the House of Lords Reception was once again fully booked, with over 300 alumni and supporters joining us for the evening. The event was hosted by the Chair of the IMAGINE Campaign Board, Lord Crisp (on behalf of Lord Carrington) who spoke to attendees about our very first fundraising and volunteering campaign, IMAGINE. The Vice-Chancellor, Sir David Bell, also took the opportunity to bring our alumni up to date with the progress of the University.
100% of attendees who responded to our events survey told us that they would recommend this event to other alumni and 75% said that they are planning to come again next year.
We were delighted with the feedback from our guests - here are a few examples of what they told us:
"Another splendid event that all the of organisers can be proud of."
"I enjoyed meeting other alumni and seeing the House of Lords. It was brilliant to hear about the advances the University is making as well."
"This event reminded me how lucky I am to be a Reading alumnus."
