Anniversary Dinner on 9 June 2018



We are happy to invite you to the dinner and party celebrating the 20th, 25th & 30th anniversary of your graduation from the College of Europe!


What, when and where

The party will take place at the Oud-Sint-Jan, on Zonnekemeers in Bruges. The entrance of the party venue is on the side of the parking lot, next to the waterfront. When you are facing the B-in café, walk along the left side of the building and enter through the large glass door.

The reunion will start with an aperitif in the garden of the Oud-Sint-Jan, where a photographer will take group pictures. After that, we will have a walking dinner. The party will continue until dawn with dancing to the tunes of DJ Vincent, who will be delighted to play music requests.

Is there a dress code?

It is a party among friends; however, we want it to be a memorable festive event. Let’s say make an effort, dress up for a (hopefully – it’s Bruges!) summer party.
