Armistice tree centenary celebration

On Saturday 6th April, St Hugh’s marked the centenary of the planting in 1919 by students of the beautiful magnolia tree in the College gardens, to commemorate the end of the First World War.

To help us celebrate the day we were delighted to welcome back alumna Kate Glover FRSA (Modern History, 1965) and the Historia Theatre Company, who staged a performance of Dear Chocolate Soldier in Mordan Hall.

The play is based on the letters of Bombardier Edwin Hassall, who fought at the Somme.

The event was very moving, and well-attended.
