A study day to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary
Do come and join us for a day of celebration and scholarship on Tuesday 20 September 2011. The programme for the day will consist of a variety of short talks by specialists on a rich diversity of topics relating to the Festival.
We’ll be focusing on the Festival’s presentation and graphic design, including a talk by Naomi Games on her father’s design for the symbol. Other topics will include the signage, architecture, reminiscences of festival-goers, and the social context of the time.
An evocative exhibition will be mounted in the department to accompany the talks, including film footage, ephemera, souvenirs, publications and hitherto unpublished photographs.
The study day will start with a welcome at 10.30am and will finish by 5pm.
£60 (includes a buffet lunch – with some festival treats!) Students £30
