It’s that time of the year and our festivities begin with our Winter Wonderland events and activities for you to take part in on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 December at 12.00pm - 6.00pm on campus. 

Thursday 1 December 

Christmas tree trail

9.00am - 5.00pm (in-person: different locations around campus)

The Christmas Tree Trail is back! Pick up a map from FJB reception or centenary square, and take a walk around campus to see all of the Christmas trees decorated by University teams. The teams are competing to see whose tree will be voted the favourite and this is down to you!

Ice rink 

12.00pm - 6.00pm (in-person: Centenary Square)

The ice rink is back by popular demand for you to enjoy for free with your friends or to take a break yourself. You don't need to know how to skate as there are supports available, simply join in for some festive fun.
