Huddled Together: 50 Years of Hull University Drama Department is not just a nostalgic record of remembered student days. It is a social document which, albeit through the perspective of a single subject in one sympathetic northern university, highlights some of the major changes in higher education over the last 50 years. The 138 contributions from former students of Hull University Drama Department offer a series of snapshots of the remarkable development in Britain of Drama as an independent university arts discipline, much of which could be threatened in the relentless drive towards financial outcomes as the only marker for a university degree.

50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend
Graduates of the department at Hull are invited to a special 50th Anniversary Celebration weekend, which will take place from 7-9 June in the Gulbenkian Centre and Sanctuary Bar of University House at the University of Hull.
Over the course of the weekend there will be displays of archive material, tours of the current department and campus facilities and four performances of a special show (comprising of small five-minute films, student and graduate work – if you would like to get involved with this, please get in touch), some of which will be unique to a particular showing and some repeated. We hope it will be a truly memorable way to celebrate 50 years of drama at Hull and we hope you can join us.
