The Wills Hall Association celebrated another successful Annual Reunion Weekend in July. The Bristol weather, which had been changeable, turned to a warm and bright evening. Once again, the Warden hosted members and their guests to a drinks reception in the his garden followed by a three course dinner in the Hall dining room. It was good to welcome large groups of members from the late 1980s and 2007-08.
Our Speaker was Professor Dame Carole Black, MB ChB 1970, MD 1975, Pro-Chancellor 2008-2012, former President of the Royal College of Physicians and now Principal of Newnham College, Cambridge. On Sunday members enjoyed the church service in the chapel led by the Rt Rev Richard Pain (BA 1979) Bishop of Monmouth and a talk given by Professor Mark Horton entitled “'Bristol and the Creation of the Atlantic World'.
Next year’s Reunion will take place on the later weekend of 11th-12th July. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Date: 5th - 6th July 2014
