Join Downing alumni at Twickenham to see Cambridge play Oxford in the annual Varsity Rugby Matches. Enjoy the outstanding entertainment of the Varsity Gathering for the very first time in the Rose Suite in the South Stand at Twickenham. With spectacular views of the action on the pitch from top-class seats and the great networking opportunities from meeting up with friends and alumni from Downing, this is the place to be at the Varsity Match!

A pay bar will be open all day, accepting credit and debit cards only. Food stalls are available within easy walking distance.

The Rose Suite is open for the Varsity Gathering from 10:30 to 18:30, with the following activities:
