Join us for our annual residential weekend in Windsor Great Park!
Once a year the department visits Cumberland Lodge, a spacious 17th century house in Windsor Great Park. It was originally the home of the Ranger of the Park but given to the St Catherine's Foundation by the King in 1947.
This is an occasion when students can meet lecturers in an informal atmosphere. There is a varied programme for the weekend with a combination of staff and student papers, a visiting speaker, a light-hearted quiz, a party on Saturday night, a football match, and time to spend in the bar or in the grounds of the park.
Take a look at the Cumberland Lodge website: it includes details about the venue, information about university visitors, links to the Cumberland Lodge Facebook page and to the blog: 'A view from Cumberland Lodge'.
The next weekend will take place 13-15 October 2017. The department heavily subsidises this weekend and therefore we can keep the cost to around £110.00 for the whole weekend. This includes two nights’ accommodation in twin rooms, all meals and transport.

What past attendees say...
'Cumberland Lodge is a must-attend event for anyone who can grab a place. It provides invaluable experience bonding with your fellow classmates and meeting and discussing philosophy with departmental lecturers. There is also the once in a lifetime opportunity to watch the lecturers play their annual football game (and maybe get involved yourself!). With stunning grounds, super people and stellar philosophy (amongst other things) on tap, the trip is a steal at any price!'
- Dan West, BA Philosophy student
