We believe in 'learning by doing', an idea reflected in our performance culture. Here you will find information on all our upcoming events.

Our students regularly have the chance to take part in music concerts and theatre productions both on and off-campus, including a bi-annual full-scale opera or musical, while our annual Festival Week allows them to show their degree work to the public.

We also host a series of free lunchtime concerts during term-time every Friday, 1.10pm at the Mumford Theatre unless otherwise stated. These are open to the public and present different visiting professional musicians every week. No advance booking is needed and no tickets are issued - just turn up and find a seat. 

The Mumford Theatre hosts regular performances arranged by our students, as well as by theatre companies from across the UK.

Our research-active staff, recognised nationally and internationally as leaders in their fields, also organise and host regular conferences and other research events.
