    The gardens and the house was the stage for St John’s Drama student for their rendition of a Rock Musical version of a “Winter’s Tale” performed as part of the York 1900 Celebrations in June 1971.
    It did not get the largest crowds during the celebrations, but it was certainly a magical time for all those taking part.
    I wonder if anyone still remembers this?

      That sounds like a great thing to be part of! We’ll keep an ear out and let you know if we hear anything about it. We can also check our archives of White Rose magazines once we’re back on campus. Emily, Alumni team

    Absolutely loved studying in this amazing building in the early 90s and have booked my tickets already.

    Can’t wait to show my husband round – and as it’s just two days after my birthday it’s the perfect way to celebrate!
