Official Unveiling of New College Lights


Reception in the Rainy Hall, New College, Mound Place, Edinburgh EH1 2LX

Dress code: casual attire


On behalf of Professor David Fergusson, Principal of New College and Professor Paul Foster, Head of the School of Divinity you are invited to join us for the official unveiling of the New College Lights on the 29 November 2017.  

All students and staff are welcome, and we ask guests to arrive at 5pm for a drinks reception and recital by the St Mary's Cathedral Choir. Guests will then be invited to join us for a  countdown to switch on the new lighting scheme.

The New College Lights have been generously funded by Edinburgh graduate, Rev Bob Funk and will illuminate the superb architecture of the College in the night sky. The buildings are some of the most historically significant in Scotland, and form part of one of the world’s most iconic cityscapes, encompassing the Mound and Edinburgh Castle.

We do hope you will be able to join us on this special occasion. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet with alumni, students and staff, and to hear more about the School of Divinity. No tickets are needed.
