19 December 2016 – what’s the story behind door number 19?

Success for Nottingham in Parliament Day!

On October 25 Nottingham decamped to London to stage the very first, and hugely successful, Nottingham in Parliament Day.

The one-day takeover of Westminster involved more than 100 organisations from Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. After chairing an entertaining special edition of University Challenge, featuring teams from the House of Commons  and the University of Nottingham, Speaker of the House John Bercow said:  “Nottingham has shown itself to be a leader. And where you have led, others may now follow.”

Who opened the door?

Our thanks to Professor Dame Jessica Corner, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, for opening door number 19 on our digital calendar and review of 2016.
