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. 


Upcoming Bedford Society events

Save the date: Alumni Writers' Evening
Tuesday 8 October 2019, 5.30pm at 11 Bedford Square, London

Have you written (or are you writing) a novel, autobiography, local history, biography, poetry or similar? We are looking for alumni writers to speak at our Alumni Writers' Evening. The event will offer you the chance to speak briefly about what you have written to fellow Bedford College alumni and hear from other alumni authors over a glass of wine.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Caroline Barron with details of your publications/works.

This is not an evening for academic writing but for more personal writing, or writing for what the publishers call, ‘the interested general reader’.
