On Wednesday 23 September the RCM launched a special event in recognition of the graduating class of 2020, marking the occasion in place of a delayed Graduation Ceremony due to Covid-19 restrictions. The RCM Alumni team is thrilled to welcome all our graduates into our Alumni Network.

The Class of 2020 event was livestreamed on the RCM YouTube and Facebook channels and was viewed by over 2,000 people. It was an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and success of the 2020 graduating class in these exceptional times. The virtual event included a short musical performance and words from RCM Director Professor Colin Lawson, RCM Chairman Lord Black of Brentwood and graduating students Dafydd Allen and Evangeline Tang. The RCM also posted photos, videos and memories submitted by staff and students on its Twitter channel. You can watch the event below:
