Saturday, July 6, 2019 11:00 - 23:30

An afternoon and evening of celebrations in honour of Forty Years of Women at Christ's College, culminating in a celebratory dinner in Hall.

The admission of the first female post-graduate students to Christ’s in 1978 and the admission of the first co-educational undergraduates in 1979 is a landmark in College history. We are planning to celebrate in a variety of ways over the course of the day.

11:00-12:00 Murray Edwards College. A Private Tour of The New Hall Art Collection; a collection of modern and contemporary art by women on display at Murray Edwards College. This is one of the largest and most significant collections of contemporary art by women in the world, receiving accreditation from the Arts Council England in 2018.

15:30-16:00 College Gardens. The Christ’s College gardeners will conduct a guided tour of the gardens including their contribution to the 40th anniversary celebrations in the form of a special display border in Second Court - a variety of marguerites and white roses in homage to the Lancastrian Lady Margaret Beaufort.

16:00-16:45 Tea in the Fellows’ Garden (Buttery if inclement).

17:00-18:00 Plumb Auditorium: Panel Discussion on the topic “Christ’s women and the mark they make”, with Jane Martinson (m. 1987, former Head of Media for Guardian News and Media, and the Marjorie Deane Professor of Financial Journalism at City University.
