50th anniversary opening ceremonies and website launch

The University’s 50th anniversary celebrations begin in one month, and all staff are invited to the opening ceremonies that will kick start the year.

They take place on 1 October in Canterbury and 2 October in Medway. They are open to all and we are inviting the local community to join our students, staff and alumni for an evening of live music, entertainment and spectacular fireworks.

Both events start at 5pm so come along after work – to the Senate Lawn in front of the Templeman Library and the No1 Bistro on the ground floor of the Rochester building – to join the fun. You can find out more about both events on the new 50th anniversary website.

It launched this morning and you are the first to see it! It includes details of events and projects taking place throughout the year – with more to come. It also has a new memory wall where we will add your photos and stories of Kent. Come and have a look around!
