Freshers’ Party and Informal Social Dinner, 15 September, 2015

The Society’s “Welcome to Cambridge” event for students from Luxembourg going up to Cambridge for the first time this October was held at the Brasserie Kirchberg on Tuesday, 15 September. It was combined with an informal social dinner for alumni so that Freshers could talk to those who have have already had the marvellous experience of studying at Cambridge. The event was a great success, with a total of 22 participants, of which there were 5 undergraduate and 3 graduate Freshers – a record for this event. The Brasserie provided excellent fayre for us, and judging by the animated conversations carried out along and across the table between the new students and the alumni both young and old, a great deal of information about life and studying in Cambridge was exchanged. It was 23.30 before we thought we ought to bring things to an end and release the staff of the Brasserie.

Congratulations to the Freshers on securing their places at Cambridge! We wish you well, and look forward to seeing you back with us so that we can share your experiences. Good luck!


The Cambridge Society at the Schueberfouer, 27 August, 2015

For the second year in a row a group of Cantabrigian alumni met at the Schueberfouer to enjoy a traditional fish, frites and salad (alternative sausages, frites and salad!), this year at the Friture Armand. We were some 12 people altogether, with some new members as well as some of most senior members of the Society. And most enjoyable it was! We had all the Wine Queens from the Mosel in the restaurant, resplendent in their gowns and tiaras. The intention had been to follow the meal with a stroll around to soak up all the fun of the fair – perhaps with even some of the more adventurous venturing onto some of the more extreme attractions – but it was a wet night, and participants were happy to chat away over the meal. By the time we reached the end of that, the hour was somewhat advanced, and so people headed off home, after a most pleasant social gathering. To be repeated next year!
