Royal Charter University Festival

Join us to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the University receiving its Royal Charter!

We are excited to announce details of the celebrations taking place on campus to mark 40 years since the University College Buckingham received its Royal Charter on 11 February 1983, and became The University of Buckingham. To celebrate this important anniversary, we invite our alumni, former and current members of staff, and Friends of the University to The Royal Charter University Festival on our Buckingham campus on Friday 14 July 2023.

It promises to be a day of reunion with old friends and tutors, and an opportunity to hear from our Vice Chancellor Professor James Tooley.
