The Somerville London Group is the largest and most active of the College's alumni groups. The committee organises several events a year. These include speaker events on politics, diplomacy, history, sociology and science and private visits to London venues such as gardens, museums, art galleries and fashion stores.London Group Committee
If you live or work in Greater London and do not receive emails about the Group but would like to, please contact Liz Cooke, Somerville Association Secretary, on Elizabeth.Cooke@some.ox.ac.uk . Please also contact Liz should you have any suggestions for future events or activities.
The committee is supported by Liz Cooke and the College's Alumni Office.
There are always members of the committee at events and we always look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces at them.
The Somerville London Group is primarily focused on bringing together Somerville alumni of all ages and interests who can come to our events in London, and secondarily on fundraising for the College. We do charge for every event, setting the price at a level which covers our costs and provides a small surplus for the College. At the committee's AGM we donate the annual surplus to the Somerville Annual Fund. The Group donated:
£3,121.43 in 2016
£4,904.85 in 2015
£2,500.00 in 2014
£3,500.00 in 2013
£3,449.72 in 2012
£3,070.00 in 2011
£3,000.00 in 2010
