2020 Green Gaudy
Thank you to everyone who helped celebrate our green Gaudy.
The festivities are over for another year, but you can catch up on the all of day's events:
Films for the Gaudy
Do watch this special message of welcome from Dr Georgina Paul, Vice Principal. Get to know the College gardens with this new film and catch up on the new buildings. And why not join Emeritus Fellow Dr Sarah Watkinson, Wytham Woods' first poet in residence. In this film she leads us through a delicate maze of woodland and words, weaving together nature, research and poetry. And in anticipation of her very first St Hilda's Gaudy our new Chaplain has recorded this poetic greeting.

As the new buildings continue to take root in the landscape of our beautiful College Grounds, we dig into the history of our magnificent gardens to unearth their stories. From the Rose Garden to the Suffragette Border; the South Garden Rockery to the fritillaries of the Meadow our Garden Consultant, Walter Sawyer, in conversation with Dr Sarah Watkinson, will delve into the archives to reveal how the gardens have evolved before bringing us up-to-date with the rejuvenation of our unique and much-loved riverside landscape.
