The College warmly welcomes spouses and partners but is unable, on this occasion, to offer accommodation.

The College Archives are fortunate to hold the official written records of several clubs and societies from the early 1960s, and we will be displaying a selection of these. We are always looking for other items such as photos, posters, play and concert programmes; if you have kept mementos from your time at Merton for which you would like to find a permanent home, the Archivist, Julian Reid, would be very pleased to hear from you.

The College asks for a contribution of £33 per person for the Diamond Jubilee Lunch to cover costs; however, we do want everyone to attend if they can, so no one will press you should you not be in a position to make the suggested payment.

Limited parking will be available at the College Sports ground (Manor Road), about a 15-minute walk from College, on a first-come first-served basis. You can request a parking place on the event webpage.

The deadline for booking has now passed; please contact the Development Office if you wish to attend.
