To mark the Royal Opening of the new Emily Wilding Davison Building, the Royal Holloway Chorus and Director of Choral Music Rupert Gough perform a concert fit for a king as they explore music written for or performed at Royal events. The programme will include such favourites as Parry’s I was glad, which will be contrasted with a setting by Henry Purcell for the Coronation of James II, and Handel’s famous’ Zadok the Priest. There will also be offerings from Vaughan Williams performed at the Coronation of Elizabeth II, as well as a performance of John Tavener’s Song for Athene which was performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

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
