From October 2018 we will cease the toured in music and events programme in favour of increasing student engagement with the arts. We will still offer a range of activities that engage with the wider community from performances by the choir and orchestra, to Radar events and our ever popular Pub Science. We also hope to make the Arts Festival an annual event celebrating the creative arts at the University.

Rest assured this decision has been carefully considered. We can invest in championing the creative life of the campus, celebrating our talented students and staff, and making this accessible to the wider community.
