Today we have a rare opportunity to see original documents either about College alumni or from the Colleges own history - in the Archive Reading Room with the experts on hand.

This follows on from the talk that Head Archivist Patricia gave to the club recently.  The presentation photos were riveting enough - now see some of the originals in the 'flesh'.

The maximum number will be 2 groups of 15 - so lots of room.
