Chris Potter arrived at Wellington in 1947, 70 years later, he remains an avid custodian of College. OW Rory Bremner cast him as “not just a time capsule but a living repository of Wellington history”.

In June 2016, we began an incredible journey, following Chris around the country, talking to OWs about their time at Wellington. We have begun to build a living archive that continues to grow daily and we would like to invite you to join in ‘virtually’ on the evening of 17th June 2017.

Join us for the worldwide, online screening of Wellingtonian70. A film made by OWs, for the OWs and the wider Wellington Community. Wellingtonian70 is comprised of happy, interesting, funny, sad, eye opening and illuminating memories. It is but a small, fascinating insight into the evolution of an extraordinary institution.

On the 17th June, we are inviting you to enjoy a trip down memory lane from the comfort of your own home and share your own stories with us via social media. Wellingtonian70 will be aired for one night only, so get your diaries out and book Chris and the OWs in!
