The Ramsay Society Centenary Dinner 2024 occurred on the same day as our on-campus Alumni Centenary Event, during which alumni had the chance to revisit the department, join lab tours, take part in panel discussions and reminisce about their time studying at UCL. 

The evening event brought together students, alumni, staff, and special guests to commemorate the Department's remarkable achievements

This year's gathering held added significance as we celebrated the Department's centenary, marking 100 years since its establishment in 1923.

Guests were invited to join us for an exceptional evening featuring a welcoming drinks reception, an exquisite 3-course meal, captivating speeches, and an awards ceremony.
