Tuesday 18 October 2016 is the University of Bradford’s 50th Birthday! It was on that day in 1966 that Queen Elizabeth II granted the University its Charter. Staff and students are invited to celebrate the event in the Richmond Atrium between 1.30 and 2.30pm. There will be a last chance to look at the 25th Anniversary Time Capsule, and a glimpse of the objects chosen for the 50th Anniversary Time Capsule before both are locked away until 2041! And yes, there will be a birthday cake. We look forward to seeing lots of friends and colleagues there for a very special day.
Here’s one we made earlier: our 40th anniversary cake.
These forthcoming 50th anniversary lectures are going to be very interesting. Both are free, but do register, as they are likely to be popular!
Harold Wilson: statesman and visionary. Lecture by the Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP. 3 November.
Vice-Chancellor’s 50th Anniversary lecture with writer and educationalist Will Hutton (best known perhaps for his book The State We’re In). 26 October, 6pm, the Norcroft Centre.
