Culture Night, Friday 21st September
For the third time the College is taking part in Culture Night, the great national event which this year is on the evening of Friday 21st September. Again the Sub-Warden, Julian Girdham, will give a 15-minute talk on the history of the College starting at 7pm in the Chapel (visitors are welcome to come from 6.30pm, and will be guided to the Chapel by pupils), followed by an historical and architectural tour of the campus for about an hour. 2018 is the 175th anniversary of our foundation.
Note: if using Google Maps you will be sent to the wrong entrance (beside Marlay Nursing Home). Instead, the main entrance is via Kilmashogue Lane at the other end of College Road. See here for full directions.

Among the features are the William Butterfield-designed Chapel (1880) as well as the Cloisters and Chapel Square, the original Hollypark House (late 1700s), and Robin Walker’s refurbished modernist Science Building (originally 1971), as well as lovely gardens. A literal overview of the campus can be seen in our aerial video here.
