Concerts and Lectures Series

The Concerts and Lectures Series is having a bit of a ‘re-shake’! The Vice-Chancellor thought it would be a good idea to have the Concerts and Lectures Series more closely linked to the Literary Festival that is held at the University during the summer. We hope to have a high profile speaker every two to four weeks, followed by book signings where appropriate. There will be no more leaflets sent out termly; instead we will be advertising via email, posters and flyers in town as well as postal flyers.

We do hope to see you at some of these lectures. We think they will be extremely interesting and thought-provoking, and we love that we can have an extension of the Literary Festival all year round!

Please email if you have any questions.
