The Fusion Festival is a celebration of research, education and professional practice with a series of events created and run by BU's Events Management students.
This year, the festival will run between 3-7 April 2017, with around 20 events organised within the global theme of 'Around the World in an Event'.
Each event focuses on a different aspect of the theme, and aims to break down barriers and create a continuous and fruitful exchange of knowledge.
The students have organised events ranging from providing information and advice to games, activities and sharing food from around the world.
Here's a taster of what to expect:
