Events

There are various annual events that take place throughout the College year for students from both campuses to get involved in, whether you want to help organise or simply take time out from studying and meet new friends.

Sometimes events offer students the opportunity to take to the stage and perfom, at other times they are inter-school sporting events to bring out your competitive side and allow you to compete for your department!

Here are just a few examples of the events taking place throughout the year that you can look forward to...

Welcome BBQ   

This event takes place at the beginning of term in the area outside the Westminster building. Students can make the most of the last of the summer weather by enjoying BBQ food and watching live entertainment onstage.
