Hiddingh Hall and its Library: A Centenary Celebration

Pin It

Hiddingh Hall and the Hiddingh Hall Library on the University of Cape Town’s Hiddingh Campus will celebrate their 100th anniversary on 29 September 2011. The complex has served as a venue for musical, theatre and art events as well as social functions throughout this time. Its Library – UCT’s first specially-built space for this purpose – once held the whole of the university’s book stock, but now serves Art and Drama specialisations. Andrew Lamprecht, Lecturer at the Michaelis School of Fine Art at UCT, has an association with the Library stretching back two decades, and will present an illustrated talk on this fascinating building, its beautiful and historic library and the myriad people who have worked in it as researchers, students and librarians over the last 100 years.

This lunchtime lecture will take place at Hiddingh Hall on 29 September at 13:00. The event is free and refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Solvej Vorster on (021) 480 7139.
