Matt Lucas visits the Department of Film and TV

23 February 2017

On 16th February 2017, the comic performer and writer Matt Lucas visited the Department of Film and Television.

He was at the University receiving an Honorary Degree for which Dr Alex Clayton gave the public oration, describing Matt Lucas as one of the finest comic performers of his generation. Having studied Film and Theatre with us in the 1990s, Matt was keen to revisit the University, see our new spaces, and talk with current students.

He gave a fascinating Q+A session for our students in the Winston Theatre, and was taken on a tour of the Department of Film and TV to see the facilities we offer.

Matt was also visibly delighted to catch up with Professor Sarah Street, who had been his tutor during his spell at Bristol.
