Open House – Sunday 17 September 2017

Every year the Society opens its doors for ‘Open House’ weekend. This year, our 400th Anniversary year saw the Master, Professor Charles Mackworth-Young and the Clerk and Registrar welcoming people into the building.
Once in the building, visitors were greeted by our volunteers which are our Court, staff, Archives volunteers, members of the Society who gave up their time to talk and share information about the History of the building and its current activities.

The Faculty of Conflict and Catastrophe had Dr Tim Healing, the Course Director, the President talk to people about the course, gadgets and lectures.

The Faculty of the History and Philosophy of Medicine and Pharmacy also had the Deputy President, Briony Hudson, Julie Papworth and Gary Clayton Jones engaging with people who had not heard about the Society or what the Faculty does. Some of our archives were also on display.

Everyone had the opportunity to explore the Court room, Parlour and entrance hall. Overall, we had 2,185 people walk through our doors.
