University of Surrey's International Alumni Day

I decided to visit my old university on its grand open day for the alumni, on Sat 14th July 2012. I studied Hotel & Catering Management 1981-85 (now called Hospitality and Tourism Management).

It evolved from a modest mail order company in the mid-1980s to its present, highly-respected position in the photographic industry with over 47,000 customers world-wide, that have included the legendary film-director, Stanley Kubrick, David Suchet, best-known in his role as Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie’s famous sleuth, Lord Snowdon, world-famous National Geographic pho…
