Alumni are warmly invited to attend events at the Academy. The central Diary of Events is a comprehensive termly listing of all public events. As an Alumni Network member, you will receive this publication automatically*. In addition, the Alumni Network publishes details of alumni ‘exclusives’ on its website and social media pages. These include behind-the-scenes insights, pre-concert talks and receptions, family workshops, professional development workshops and reunion events.

Alumni Network Extra: A brand new series of social events for alumni of all generations linked to the Academy’s central Diary, and featuring exclusive post-performance opportunities to meet and greet performers, conductors, associated artists, staff and each other over drinks.
The series is designed exclusively for alumni as a way of further reflecting our ethos of sharing a living, breathing , open and relevant Academy with our loyal alumni. Come and share in the experience with us. This is your Academy and we’d be delighted to see you.
Most Academy Masterclasses are open to the public with full details listed in the termly Diary of Events. In addition, alumni card holders are also eligible to attend departmental masterclasses by arrangement with the relevant administrator, and subject to space.
Lectures & Talks
We welcome alumni at our public lectures and talks. Most details will be found via the main Academy Events page, including details of Barbirolli Lectures, Museum events and other lectures and talks.
The Alumni Network runs a small annual programme of themed Family Workshops alongside the work of Open Academy and the Museum. Each workshop is lead by a Professional animateur, often an alumnus/na themselves, and the workshops are designed to bring alumni and their families together in performance and composition. There are also family events run by the museum.
Many of our alumni do not live in London. Look in the central Diary of Events listings, for details of performances outside London. Look out also for Alumni Network ‘socials’. Indeed you may be interested in planning a social event in your area. If so, please get in touch with the Alumni Network team.
Formal alumni reunions are run by decade. Since the Alumni Network was established we have welcomed alumni from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s back to the Academy. In June 2015 we held a special reunion event for students from the 1940s & 1950s.
