Old Members' Dinner 2022
The Old Members' Dinner returns and we look forward to welcoming you to Queen’s for an extended programme, featuring a screening of The Changeling, a Jacobean tragedy written by Queen’s Old Member Thomas Middleton (1598) and fellow playwright William Rowley.
To mark the 400th anniversary of its licensing for performance in 1622, the play was filmed entirely at Queen’s earlier this year with a cast of thirteen and directed by Chris Diacopoulos. After its premiere at this year’s Benefactors’ Dinner in July, we are delighted to present this very special Queen’s production of The Changeling to a wider audience and hope you will be able to join us for a dramatic afternoon in the Shulman Auditorium.
Old Members are welcome to bring a guest.
Tickets cost £60 including wine.

The Old Members’ Office has been asked for further clarification of the dress code for the Dinner.
Views on the details of dress codes may differ, but everyone coming back to Queen’s for a dinner knows that these are special occasions. Dressing up is part of the enjoyment and shows respect both for the College’s history and for the care and expertise of those who create the wonderful meals and support the events.
We love to see formal evening dress, style, and elegance and these can take many forms; we suggest Black Tie, but please wear whatever you will enjoy that will contribute to the celebrations of the evening.
