St Hilda's had great success in Drama Cuppers 2017. Our cast of Freshers won the Best of Cuppers award for their performance of 'The Tell-Tale Heart' at the Burton-Taylor Theatre on 1 November 2017. In addition, Niimi Day Gough won the Best Actor award and the Best Design award went to George Twinn and Eva Newton. Many congratulations to all!
At our Founder's Day service, we remembered Dorothea Beale, who founded St Hilda's 124 years ago. Also in our thoughts was St Hilda, who was known for her patronage of learning, and for her leadership of the English Church in a formative period. At the dinner that followed the service, we were honoured to welcome our guest speaker and Human Rights lawyer, Gareth Peirce (History, 1958), who spoke compellingly about the challenges faced today by minority groups, and how little this has changed over the course of her career.
