Friends of the School of History: Day Trip to Ypres

There are still places left on our first dedicated Friends of the School of History members trip to Ypres on Tuesday 12 March 2015.

The day trip will include a tour of the battlefields of WW1, given by Professor Mark Connelly, and the opportunity to attend the Last Post ceremony.

Tickets cost £35 each, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis as spaces are limited. For more information, and to book your place, or if you are not yet a Friend of the School, but would still like to attend, please contact Sam Crooks on

Members of the group, which was launched at the School’s Alumni Reunion Day in October, are invited to attend Open Lectures on a variety of historical topics from both our academics and visiting speakers, keep up to date with the latest news and events from the School with our alumni newsletter, as well as enjoy social events, and receive invitations to our dedicated Friends trips to places of historical interest.
