College celebrated the 70 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign with a Platinum Jubilee Evensong followed by a Platinum Jubilee Dinner on 24 May. The choral works during the service were taken from the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 and highlighted the quality and depth of the College Choir and organists.  During Dinner the Loyal Toast was proposed by the Student’s Club Secretary, Mr Sebastian Shanahan, followed by a rousing singing of God Save the Queen and the College Hymn, Sir Hubert Parry’s Jerusalem.
