800th Anniversary Finale: Notice

The Finale of the 800th Anniversary Year will take place on the evenings of Saturday 16, Sunday 17, and Monday, 18 January 2010. The Finale will be based around a series of large-scale light projections designed by world-renowned light artist Ross Ashton. Projection sites include the Senate-House and Old Schools, the Gibbs Building and Chapel at King’s College. With the consent of the Provost and Fellows of King’s College, the Master and Fellows of Clare College, and the Master and Fellows of Gonville and Caius College, a circular stewarded route will pass through Senate-House Yard, down Trinity Lane past Clare College, and into and through King’s College onto King’s Parade. Whereas the opening event in 2009 focused on Cambridge’s history, this event will focus on the Cambridge of tomorrow and in particular its transformative research. A gala reception will be hosted by the Vice-Chancellor at King’s College on Monday, 18 January to mark the close of the Anniversary Year.
