The Bedford Society

The society for alumni and former staff members of Bedford College, one of the founding colleges of Royal Holloway and Bedford New College.

The Bedford Society ensures that the spirit of Bedford College, its alumni and staff lives on and is widely recognised.

The Society:

  • Celebrates and honours the pioneering women and men who went before us
  • Draws on the talents and expertise of the several thousand Bedfordians to provide opportunities to meet each other and current students
  • Inspires and supports current and future generations of students through example, advice and philanthropy.

All Bedford College alumni, including former staff, are automatically Bedford Society members. If you don't currently receive Bedford Society communications please update your details with us.
