Buckingham Society Lunch

Buckingham Society Lunch 2023

Magdalene College, Cambridge

The Master and Fellows are delighted to invite members of the Buckingham Society and their guests to attend this year’s Buckingham Society Luncheon on Saturday 3rd June from 12.30pm-4.00pm here at Magdalene.

Membership of the Buckingham Society is open to those Members who have generously pledged a legacy to Magdalene, and has been named in honour of the Buckingham family, who were the College’s principal benefactors in the 15th century. This biennial event is our way of thanking our legators for choosing to support Magdalene in this manner. 


12.30pm: Drinks Reception in the Master’s Garden                        
1.00pm: Lunch in Hall
3.00pm-4.00pm: Opportunity to visit the Pepys Library and the Old Library

Dress Code: Lounge suit or equivalent. No gowns required for alumni

Guests: Members may be accompanied by a guest on this occasion

We are sorry that we will not be able to offer tours of the New Library on this occasion as we are in the middle of examinations at this time and the Senior Tutor has asked that students are left to study undisturbed. We are pleased however that Magdalene’s Pepys Library and the Old Library (opposite Chapel) will be opened especially for Members and their guests to visit should they wish.


This event is free of charge to attend.


We regret that we are unable to offer accommodation in College on this occasion.
