University of York 50 years

If you have your birthday, you have a celebration. Unless you are York uni; then you have hundreds. They turned 50 this year, and they were not letting that go past unnoticed. There had been countless many occasions already, but this day there was a garden party for staff. In the middle of the heatwave. And the university might be very young, but it is located on the terrain of a monumental mansion that is much older. And it provides a nice backdrop that breathes an Oxbridgish atmosphere! York has been invited into the Russell Group; they sure live up to the image!

The party getting started; it did get quite crowded later!
