Plymouth Marjon Student Union
Marjon Student Union, Marjon, Derriford Road, Plymouth, PL6 8BH
First established at Marjon on the Kings Road Chelsea site 29th June 1930 as “The Education Society” – a series of “Sunday Night Concerts” – play readings, song evenings, debates – set up by a group of students who were bored with the lack of entertainment and wanted their time at college to be social as well as academic.
According to the diary record of student Eric Ford, it wasn’t at all well received by the Principal at the time, but it survived, persisted and it’s lasted through World War, college evacuations and relocations to be the “lasting legacy of the students of 1929”. Later added a drama society, an orchestra and a choir, as well as the already-established sports groups.
