Around 60 alumni and friends of the University attended a special drinks reception on Thursday 5 June 2008 at The Lowry Galleries in Salford Quays.

The event was part of our “Bringing Sheffield to You” initiative, aimed at re-connecting with alumni who live outside the Sheffield area.

Those attending had the opportunity to meet the new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Keith Burnett, who hosted the event. Drinks and a selection of canapés were served to guests.

Professor Burnett later gave a short speech thanking alumni for their support of the University and highlighted the latest developments at the University.

After the speech guests had exclusive access to explore The Lowry’s current exhibitions. These included the theatre inspired works of Dame Laura Knight and of course the biggest public collection of works by L.S. Lowry himself.
