Commonwealth & International Student Christmas Conference 2023

December 15, 2023 @ 4:00pm - December 20, 2023 @ 12:00pm

The Commonwealth and International Student Christmas Conference is our longest-standing tradition, bringing together students from around the world to celebrate Christmas in our wonderful, atmospheric home in Windsor Great Park.

Since 1947, we have opened our house to extend a warm welcome to students from all over the world who are currently studying in the UK, to enjoy thought-provoking seminars and workshops, meeting others who are studying away from home, and to experience Christmas in our beautiful 17th century home and surrounding park. You can find out more about the work of Cumberland Lodge here.

Our theme for the Christmas Conference this year is the role of festivals in bringing people together, and understanding how we can have better conversations over the dinner table with those who might hold different views. The programme will also include:

  • A carol service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints or at Cumberland Lodge
  • A guided winter trail through Windsor Great Park (weather permitting)
  • A traditional Christmas dinner, including a visit from Father Christmas
  • Evening entertainment.

  • Shared accommodation – £180
  • Single accommodation – £280

If you are interested in attending, reserve your place by emailing Natalja Lipka at programmeteam@cumberlandlodge.ac.uk. Make sure to include your preferred ticket type.
