Desmond Tutu Memorial Service

King's College London held a service at The College Chapel on 5th April 2022 to remember and celebrate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died in December 2021 aged 90.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu was one of King's College London's best-known and best-loved alumni, he studied Theology in the early/mid-1960s, was a Fellow of the College (FKC), and was immensely proud of his connections with King's, which he maintained throughout his life. Many came together to remember the Arch, to give thanks for his life's work, and to reflect on the impact he made on King's College London, and the impact which King's had on him.
