40th Anniversary Open Campus Day Saturday 7th May 2005

Well, finally D-Day (well nearly) came upon us. Lots of students in blue anniversary T-shirts getting ready for the public, a thousand balloons blowing in the very-strong breeze, stands ready, WMG machinery, displays, and exciting "stuff" ready, 40 years of innovation all set up in Maths Building, Brass Band ready, signage up, SU union all ready, Beef shack setting up, Could Quartet arriving and then…..
Dark clouds came up ahead, cold winds howled, rain poured down on the now freezing students, still smiling, bless them…
Not a good start one might say!
However, those who braved the elements, eventually saw the sun shine on them! The street entertainers came up, the Revelation Choir sung, little children with painted faces listened to the music in the Arts Centre and hunted down Lego men.
At the end of the day we were all tired but felt that a good day was had by all and that, indeed, is all that matters!
So, if you were here, let us know how your day went.
