internationally.


Guests included Jeremy Beeton, Director General of the Government Olympic Executive; Dame Rosemary Cramp, Durhams first female archaeology professor; and The Very Reverend Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham.


Students from Butler Jazz Band, Durham University Light Opera Group and Durham University Small Big Band provided entertainment.
