About St John's College

Founded in 1909, St John’s College boasts a lively and diverse mix of students and is like no other Durham college.

Set in a series of beautiful listed buildings in Durham's historic heart, the College enjoys stunning views of the Norman Cathedral and River Wear.St John's is one of the smallest colleges, and is renowned for its welcoming and supportive atmosphere.

St John's has two distinctive yet engaged communities at its heart: a diverse community of undergraduates, postgraduates and academics studying for University degrees in all disciplines, and Cranmer Hall, a thriving Anglican theological college in which people are educated and formed for church leadership.

The College has a degree of independence within the University, both financially and in its governance. Our students study for University degrees alongside members of other colleges, but we have the freedom to do things a little differently.

Entertaining Angels

7th December 2017, 19:00 to 21:00, St John's College Chapel

A rehearsed reading of Richard Everett's much-acclaimed play, 'Entertaining Angels'. Richard Everett is currently the Visiting Wayfarer Fellow at St John's.

"Everett handles the comedy well – Grace’s bon mots are very funny … Keith gets all the best lines – and milks them with miraculous comic timing."

The Guardian

"A very English comedy with some real emotion … scratch the surface and you’ll find interesting undercurrents rippling the water … Adultery, miscarriage, divorce and deception interestingly handled all, are just some of the problems that writer Richard Everett beds down among well-received jokes … This is a sure-fire hit…"

London Evening Standard

"This deceptively profound comic play was thoroughly absorbing and entertaining. It ... surprised and delighted with its ability to shake preconceptions."
