PICTURES: University of Chichester Graduation

AROUND 7,000 people gathered for this year’s University of Chichester graduation.

The ceremony took place at Chichester Festival Theatre on Friday and Saturday.

The poignancy of the date on Friday (11/11/11) was not lost on the attendees, who honoured the two-minute silence to the traditional Last Post trumpet call.
