• New Television Studio

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC6B5g5oLPI Today’s event was Peter Salmon, Director of BBC North, visiting the campus to open the new television studio in the LINC. I managed to catch the second half of his talk to media and PR students about the move to Media City in Salford that happens next year and some of the opportunities that […]

  • A Vision of Learning

    Last night I attended the launch of a new book about the history of Edge Hill University. It was co-authored by Fiona Montgomery – author of the last two books published in 1985 and 1997 – and Mark Flinn who retired as Pro Vice Chancellor (Academic) last year. Coinciding with the launch of the book […]

  • The brand-new Edge Hill campus (of 1933)

    Thanks to the generosity of Edge Hill alumnus and Honorary Fellow Anne Laing, we are able to look at these amazing images of the campus during its first two years of opening, 1933-35. Here are a few selected images. You can see them all as a slideshow or gallery. Note view straight through to the […]

  • Jonathan Pryce Q&A

  • Lancashire Hall

    An interesting article about the old Lancashire Hall from an issue of Edgeways: ONE of Edge Hill’s best-known buildings has been demolished to make way for a multi-million pound new development. Lancashire Hall, home to thousands of students since it was built in 1962, has been pulled down, to be replaced by an exciting new […]

  • Edge Hill retro-fashion

    A fascinating gift from a long-standing Alumnus has arrived in the 125 Office. Apparently in the very earliest years at Ormskirk, the (all-female) students were all given a silk square to wear when they commenced their studies: It has lasted remarkably well for 70+ years. Perhaps the narrow gold stripes were a bit brighter when […]

  • Projection & Reflection

    Guest post by Rachel Bury from Learning Services Last night saw me and friends from the University at the CUC Gallery in Liverpool for an exciting 125 event which was very much the future! We were in the fabulous CUC gallery space which is an old Victorian warehouse in the city centre of Liverpool. The […]

  • Edge Hill Metal

    In a previous post I visited Edge Hill station and mentioned that the arts and culture space Metal was housed in one of the buildings but since I visited at 7pm on a Sunday night it was unsurprisingly closed! The other day BBC Breakfast visited Metal in a feature about old railway buildings: What happens […]

  • Who you calling a mug?

    I got back into the office this morning to find this Edge Hill University College branded mug on my desk: It’s quite likely that someone is trying to tell me something, but I think it’s great!  I really like how the old logo’s “waves” have been turned on their side. In the background you can […]
