Thomas Allen appointed Chancellor of Durham University

I saw Thomas Allen sing Ned Keene in Peter Grimes at the Royal Opera House in July 1975, some two months before I became an undergraduate at the university he is now Chancellor of. He follows in the footsteps of some distinguished predecessors including Margot Fonteyn and Peter Ustinov.  The photo on the left is from the programme for that Peter Grimes.
