All our Memory Banquet events will be taking place in and around the beautiful eighteenth-century Grove House, part of Froebel College.

The University of Roehampton comprises four colleges (Froebel, Whitelands, Digby Stuart and Southlands), all of which are situated on landscaped grounds once the private gardens and grounds of country villas like Grove House. We are lucky to have great archives of both the colleges, and of the historic houses on campus (especially Grove House, Parkstead [the main building of Whitelands College], Mount Clare and the now-demolished Elm Grove, on the site of Digby Stuart).

The Old Orchard will feature in our Apple Promenade during the Memory Banquet.
