2020 Hatfield Floreat

Invitation to the virtual Hatfield Floreat – 24 July 2020

Members of Hatfield Association have been invited to join the Hatfield Floreat 2020 online. Please see below the message from Hatfield College.

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Floreat will now be held online on Friday 24 July at 6- 7.30pm.


Celebrating our Hatfielders achievements and contributions has never been more important. With end of year activities cancelled and graduation ceremonies postponed, we are committed to ensuring our Floreat tradition continues.

This year, we are extending a warm invitation to our alumni and friends to join us via Zoom to congratulate our students, whether that be for achieving a first, receiving colours from Clubs and Societies, or being awarded a Hatfield Cup or Shield or College colours.


The event will be hosted by the Master of the College, Professor Ann MacLarnon, it will include special alumni speakers Sir Tim Smit KBE, Olympic rower Louisa Reeve, first female Senior Man Yolande Wright and Association Exec member and ex-Keeper of the College Cane Nicola Candlish. With music by our very own Kinky Jeff and the Swingers and Chapel Choir, it is set to be a fantastic evening.

About the Hatfield Association – Once a Hatfielder, Always a Hatfielder


The Hatfield Association was established in 1946, at a time when the future of Hatfield College, Durham University was uncertain – this was the first time that Hatfielders came together and probably the finest proof of the legendary Hatfield spirit.

Our aim is to ensure we have a strong, active and engaged network of Hatfield alumni (graduates), to facilitate and build strong relationships with the College and to support its educational and welfare needs.

To this end the Hatfield Association plays an active role in: organising annual reunions, helping to connect members through regular updates and publications, offering career advice for students through a partnership with SHAPED, supporting the outreach programme for schools and playing an active role in all three common rooms.

Our membership consists of thousands of Hatfield graduates, but we are always keen to connect with more!
