All alumni, Fellows, staff, students, family and friends are warmly invited to join us for this year’s Clare Gala Day taking place in College on Saturday 2nd July.  Gala Day is a free event and is suitable for all ages, so please do bring the whole family!


Gala Day is a great opportunity to spend the day in Clare, together with your family and friends. This year we have created a programme of fascinating talks, interactive sessions, beautiful music and much more. There is certainly something for everyone.


A full programme of the day's activities is available on our website. (Please note that children are to be supervised by their parents or carers at all times throughout the day.) 


All activities must be booked prior to the event.  To book your space(s) at Gala Day, please complete the booking form below.


As in previous years, you are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy in Clare’s beautiful grounds. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to offer the buffet lunch in College.


The closing date for booking is Monday 20 June 2022.  Activities will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Confirmation of your booking will follow after the closing date. 


Please note that parking in College is limited and we are only able to offer a space to those with access requirements or Blue Badge Holders. If you will require parking, please contact
