2017 event calendar announced


We are delighted to announce the full calendar of Alumni Association events for 2017. As with all events, they are organised by fellow Cuths alumni. We hope you can join in, reconnect with friends (no matter when you last saw them) and meet new Cuthspeople. All events are online at cuths.org/events, on facebook, and you can subscribe to them on our google calendar. Partners are always welcome at all of our events, even if they are non-Cuths.

You can also find details below of ways you can get involved in various Alumni Association activities, and all of our contact details and social media accounts.
