The evening of Thursday, March 10 was a royal one as over 50 ESU Denver members and guests gathered to hear the behind-the-scenes details of the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Ian Thompson, a former verger at Westminster Abbey and current Liturgical Assistant at Denver's Saint John's Cathedral, shared photos of the interior of Westminster Abbey as it transformed for the special day. Ian explained how the wedding site was selected, the television cameras were concealed and the event went off seamlessly. Photos and mementos of the special day were on display and Ian graciously answered questions before and after the event.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
