Carla Rees


Through a series of concurrent performances across campus featuring renowned flautist, Carla Rees, College composer Nathan James Dearden, Royal Holloway New Music Collective, plus 8 new works by students from the Royal Holloway University of London Department of Music, the audience will journey through an outdoor installation of musical memos reflecting on Human Rights, Equal Rights and LGBTQ+ Rights before converging in the new Emily Wilding Davison Exhibition space. Musical reflections will be based on speeches from Eleanor Roosevelt (‘The Struggle for Human Rights; 1948), Rory ‘Panti’ O’Neill (‘All the little things’; 2014), Elie Wiesel (‘The Perils of Indifference’; 1999) Elizabeth Nyamayaro (‘An invitation to men who want a better world for women’; 2015) and Martin Luther King (Honorary Doctorate Speech at Newcastle University; 1967).

The evening will end with a world premiere of Nathan James Dearden's you ARE determined for flute, actor and electronics in the Davison Building Exhibition space. This new work uses the text from Emily Wilding Davison's June 1912 journal entry referencing her imprisonment in Holloway Prison, north London. 

We encourage the audience to meet at Windsor Building Foyer no later than 20:50pm. This event will take place after Dame Ethyl Smyth: Composer, Suffragette, Surrey resident in the Picture Gallery.

Car parking

When you arrive for a College event at our Egham campus, please park in car parks 12 or 4.

Car park 12 can be accessed by turning right as you enter the main College gates and is located next to the tennis courts. If this car park is full, please drive further onto our campus to car park 4, which can be accessed by turning left at the mini-roundabout behind the Students’ Union. If you find both of these car parks full, we have a further large car park 14, which can be used by event guests and is located across the A30 on our North Campus, accessed via Harvest Road. You can see each of our car parks on the map opposite. We would advise that you bring the College map to campus with you and give yourself plenty of time to park.

Blue Badge holders can find designated parking spaces in Car park 1W, as well as between Gardeners Lodge and the Williams Annexe. You can find these locations by looking at our campus map opposite. If you require any assistance on arrival, please contact our premises team in advance of your visit by emailing: premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk and they will be happy to help.

Please note that we operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system on certain parts of our campus, however if you are here for an organised event, parking is unrestricted for event guests in car parks 12, 4 or 14 (or display your blue badge permit if parking in a disabled bay). If you have any questions about parking, please email: premisesadmin@royalholloway.ac.uk
