On Friday, 21 October, I was delighted to represent Music at the OU degree ceremony at Waterfront Hall in Belfast, where singer-songwriter and Alzheimer’s campaigner Tim Wheeler was presented with the award of Doctor of the University for his exceptional contribution to education and culture, and Catherine Bell, former Deputy Secretary for Policy in the Department for Employment and Learning, was awarded a Master of the University for her outstanding public service. You can read more about the awardees and the ceremony on the OU in Northern Ireland’s website here.
