Fifty Year Reunion

Fifty Year Reunion

Fifty year reunion planned

1966 - England win the world cup and later in the year a number of innocent (relatively!) young people start studying at the University of Wales, Swansea.

50 years on requires a celebration.

Alumni Mike Parker and Murray Thomson have been planning this celebratory event and invite former students who also started in 1966 to join in this celebration which will be held on the weekend of 14-16 October 2016. If appropriate, bring a friend/ spouse / partner.

The main event will be a dinner on the Saturday night, October 15th, at the Marriott Hotel on Swansea Bay.

Also arranged is an optional tour of both Singleton Campus and the new Bay campus which will take place on the morning of the 15th.

Mike and Murray have negotiated a special accommodation rate for the Friday and Saturday nights at the Swansea Marriott - which you can access/book by clicking below.
