It's Festival time! Sat 6 May

This Saturday we will welcome thousands of local people, and over 700 alumni, to join students and staff here on campus for our first ever Festival.

It will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate 50 years of achievement and to share all that is remarkable about our University today. As we make the final preparations, this is a good opportunity to sit back and reflect on what is set to be a great day for our whole community.

Do take some time to look through the Programme. I think you will agree it is a diverse and impressive line-up with over 100 sports, arts and research activities for our friends, neighbours (and ourselves) to discover and enjoy.

Tennis, judo, mini Olympics, chair making, musicals, face painting, black holes, fossils, steel bands, climbing, bath buskers, maths, submarines and microbial oils - just a taster of some of the things going on throughout the day - not forgetting the Red Devils freefall team and our giant T-Rex and Robot wars!

I do hope you will join us. Please spread the word to friends and neighbours – our festival is for everyone. People can find out more on our website where they can also book on to tours and talks.

Finally, the success of our Festival not only rides on the quality and diversity of the activities we will be sharing, but on the students and staff who will be working hard to help make things run smoothly on the day. Thanks to those of you who will be working as Ambassadors on the day - I hope you enjoy it.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost
