Alumni e-newsletter

February 2012


Thank you to all those alumni who helped make the Lowry Exhibition at the Djanogly Gallery a record-breaking success. The final figure of 46,000 visitors in just 10 weeks smashed the previous best attendance of 10,000. The new Edward Burra exhibition, which opens on 3rd March, is the first major exhibition of his work in 25 years so we’re hoping for another success.

Two quickies - our Talent Roadshows are underway. Next month we’ll be at The Royal College of Surgeons in London and we’d love to see you there. You can see photos and films of the Nottingham Talent Roadshow here as well. Secondly we want to hear from any alumni involved in any way whatsoever with the London 2012 Olympics. Let us know if you’re playing a part in the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ by contacting

Wherever you are in the world you can keep in touch with everything we do through our alumni Facebook page. It offers daily insights into some of the most amazing research, videos, alumni photographs, event information and an increasing amount of alumni chatter. So why not ‘Like’ us and join a growing band of alumni followers. It’s a great way to keep in touch and reminisce.

Finally, I would like to let you all know that, very shortly, I’ll be leaving my post here at the University for a new challenge in Manchester. I’d just like to say what a pleasure it has been to meet and talk to so many of you over the last two years and to be a part of the University of Nottingham story. I wish you all the very best for the future.
