Bournemouth University’s Festival of Learning is back with a bang this summer, with more than 150 free events and activities on offer.
The Festival takes place from Saturday 11 to Friday 17 July, with a wide range of interactive workshops and seminars.
These include family-friendly activities, professional development opportunities, sports events, theatre performances and chances to find out more about the work and research taking place at BU.
New this year will be a family day on Saturday 11 July, with a host of events suitable for all ages and interests - including arts, crafts, and science activities for kids; a performance by the BU Dementia Institute (BUDI) Orchestra; and the chance to take part in psychology experiments.
Professor John Vinney, Vice-Chancellor of Bournemouth University, said: “Over the course of the week, we’ll have over 150 events ranging from interactive workshops, family activities and public lectures to opportunities to get involved in our research.
“Whether you’re part of a business, looking for something different to do with the family, or are simply inspired by learning new things - there’s something for everyone.”
The Festival of Learning is now in its third year, and last year attracted more than 5,000 visits.
All events and activities are free and open to the public, taking place at BU’s Talbot Campus and at locations across Dorset throughout the day and evening.
Festival Director Dr Rebecca Edwards said: “This year the Festival of Learning is bigger than ever, kicking off with a really exciting day of events for young and old.
“Across the week is a fantastic array of activities to suit every interest, so whether you are new to the Festival of Learning or a veteran attendee, sign up today to learn all about this year’s brilliant programme.”
