Commemorative Plaque & Jimmy's 2nd Appearance in Guildford

On December 20, 2003 Jimmy attended ABC Trust's Riffathon auction (a fundraising event for the charity sponsored by 'Guitarist' magazine) at the University of Surrey in Guildford. Commemorative plaque was unveiled there however it had the wrong date (October 15 1968) and has since been removed. It seems to me the university recognized it's error on the plaque as well as the correct site - the Great Hall on Battersea Park Road as publicized on the original promotional poster for the event.

On June 20, 2008 the University of Surrey conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of the University to Jimmy Page for services to the music industry. The presentation ceremony was held at Guildford Cathedral. Jimmy generously signed a guitar to be given away in a competition at the upcoming GuilFest festival.
