Surrey University

The concert WAS in Battersea, I was there! Battersea College of Advanced Technology received its' charter to become the University of Surrey in1966. The new campus was being built in Guildford and in 1968 the University became a 'split personality' when half of the departments moved to Guildford for the start of that academic year! My department remained in Battersea, and this second half then moved to Guildford in 1969. This was the first big concert of the Autumn Term and a lot of people came up from Guildford for it so it was quite a reunion. I didn't realise the momentousness of the occasion at the time - I wrote in my diary that it was 'a great dance' and that the 'Yardbirds' were 'quite good' !!!! I think I was more taken up with seeing the Guildford lot!
