The tour will be organised by Florrie Procter this year and she will provide information at a later date. 

The society can also be your link with the history department itself. Let us know what you think of course content, resources and teaching quality! Everything will be reported back to lecturers to make sure your opinion is heard. Don’t hesitate to drop any committee member a message… we will be happy to help! Alternatively, feedback for the department can be sent towards course representatives for each year group.
