The Brammer Geography Society is named for Hugh Brammer, a Downing Alumnus best known for his work on agro-ecology in Bangladesh.

The society puts on social events each term, which last year included a quiz and a pub crawl, along with an annual speakers event and formal dinner. Recent events have included a talk from Nigel Clifford, current President of the Royal Geographical Society and former CEO of Ordnance Survey, and a visit to London to look around the RGS itself.
