What's on is your home for information on public events at the University.

Be inspired and entertained by events on a range of different topics. We host hundreds of events all over the city each year. Our events are for everyone and many of them are free.

Festival of Arts and Humanities, 11-21 May

A celebration of thinking and being, of people and cultures. Through a diverse programme of concerts, talks, workshops and screenings we will explore what it is to be human, seeking a better understanding of our place in this changing world.
