Saturday 19th May 2012 (09:00-17:30)

The School of English invites you to come along to the University May Fest on Saturday 19 May 2012. 

We are running a range of activities, all based at or starting from our stand in the Portland Building.

On the day, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., visitors can take part in the School of English Treasure Hunt. They can also get involved with the following, at any time:

  • Language games and activity sheets
  • Working with manuscripts and exploring medieval manuscripts online
  • Chatting to students and staff about our work in the School of English

We have lots of timetabled activities, too:
