Join us for the thirteenth annual reception at the House of Lords which will take place on Friday 11 November from 6.45pm to 8.30pm.  

The reception will be hosted by the University's Chancellor, Lord Bilimoria of Chelsea.   Lord Hannay of Chiswick, who served as the University’s Pro Chancellor from 2001 to 2006, will also be in attendance to welcome everyone.  Wine and canapés will be served in the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace, which overlook the River Thames and offer stunning views of London. The evening is a great opportunity to meet up with old friends, talk to some of our current students about their Birmingham experience, and to catch up with the latest University news.

Alumni and friends are also invited to take a private tour of the chambers of the Houses of Lords and Commons prior to the reception.  The tours are a popular part of the reception and are led by lively and interesting guides who have a thorough knowledge of the history and workings of Parliament.

Tickets for the tour and reception cost £55 per person and can be purchased from 10am (BST) on Friday 19 August from our website.

This is a non-profit event for the University and the ticket price is fully redeemed against the cost of the event.  Due to the popularity of this event, tickets are restricted to two per person and guest tickets must be booked through the online shop at the time of booking.
