Catch up, Celebrate & Contribute – 30 Year Reunion 1987
10-11 November 2017

Join us for a weekend to celebrate roughly 30 years on from our heady student days in Canterbury.

As we all know Christchurch has experienced several debilitating earthquakes.   The University of Canterbury has been rebuilding its campus ever since with help from alumni and friends.
We think it’s high time we had a catch up, a celebration and a chance to support our old University. It’s been far too long since we’ve all seen each other en masse in one venue. So we have arranged a weekend of fun culminating in a cocktail party at The Arts Centre of Christchurch's magnificent Great Hall.

Weekend's programme
Friday November 10
• 7:00pm Casual get together at the Carlton Bar, Merivale.  Bar snacks provided, cash bar.
Saturday November 11

• 6:00pm - 7:00pm tour of the Arts Centre Chemistry Building where the UC School of Music and Department of Classical Studies have recently relocated to. 
• 7:00pm – 11:00pm Cocktail Party in The Great Hall, Arts Centre of Christchurch
