We celebrate the University's global excellence, delivering and facilitating high quality and engaging events for broad audiences - promoting its work and achievements.

We're responsible for leading and co-ordinating public events and campaigns such as the Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series and our Leicester Heroes Day with the Anthony Nolan trust, and celebration activities like Christmas on Campus and building openings - plus our two annual Graduation congregations.

We also advise staff on developing events that are being organised in their own departments or schools throughout the year.
