Musicians’ Reunion 2018



The next reunion for those associated with the early years of the UEA Music Department will take place in London on Friday 5th October 2018. We have a (slight) change of venue this year, as we shall meet at the Ev Restaurant, 97-99 Isabella St, London SE1 8DD. We aim to meet for drinks in the bar from 12.30 onwards, with lunch at 1.15pm, and some of us will doubtless go on for a riverside drink at The Founders Arms, on the South Bank between Blackfriars Bridge and Tate Modern. The Ev is just 150 yards from Southwark tube station on the Jubilee line, and is a short walk from Waterloo National Rail station. It is close to the Tas, where we have met in recent years, and is part of the same restaurant chain.Click here for a map.


These reunions will normally take place on the first Friday in October. We hope this information will help friends living in distant parts of the world to plan their trips to the UK to coincide with our lunches. We would love to see you!

18 of us gathered for a most enjoyable lunch in October 2017:

For 2018 it will be payment on the day for whatever you consume, as usual. Prices at The Ev are reasonable and they specialise in an interesting range of Turkish food, with a good selection of vegetarian dishes, as well as meat, fish, seafood and salads.

Those expected at the 2018 lunch are listed here (please check back at intervals as this list will grow as bookings come in): Julian R, Michael L, Andrew B, Bryn J, Paul T, Tony O, Colin D, Graham S, Helen N, Alison K, Rex B, Liz P, Wendy C and Stephen W.

We very much hope to see you in October and promise an especially warm welcome to those who have not been to one of these lunches recently. Click here to see pictures of our large-scale reunion at The Arts Club in 2010.
