Former students of the University of Lincoln are being invited to return to their old haunts this weekend.


The university’s Alumni Association launched last year is to stage its first alumni reunion at the Brayford Pool campus on Saturday 8th July.


All former students of the university in Lincoln and Hull are welcome to attend the event, which will feature talks, campus tours, visits to Lincoln and a reunion party.


“During the day guests can enjoy trips around the campus led by current students, tours around the city of Lincoln and talks by university staff,” said alumni officer Julie Corden.


“They can reminisce with students and old friends, sharing experiences and recalling forgotten memories.”


In the evening there will be an informal get-together in the Lincoln School of Architecture building for alumni to catch up with old friends.


Accommodation will be available for all guests on Friday and Saturday evening in the university halls of residence for a small fee.
