Brasenose College, Oxford - Visit by Her Majesty The Queen
A large number of students, Fellows and staff gathered on Old Quad lawn to welcome The Queen to the College. She then spent half an hour in the Senior Common Room speaking with student representatives about life in College and had an opportunity to view two of the College's most precious manuscripts along with its Foundation Charter.
After lunch in Hall with the Principal, Professor Roger Cashmore, and over one hundred students, staff, lecturers and Fellows, The Queen met the College chefs and stewards before attending a musical and drama presentation by students in the Chapel, which included scenes from the College's history accompanied by several items from the Choir. The Queen concluded her visit by unveiling a plaque commemorating the Quincentenary of Brasenose College.
