This year the University will be holding its first University-wide Community Festival on Saturday 17 June 2017. The event builds on the successful community open days run by the former FLS and MHS.

The University’s new Inspiring Communities plan highlights our commitment to enhancing our relationship with members of our local communities.

One way we hope to achieve this is by running a free engaging pan-University community open day when we throw open our doors for our local neighbours to discover the variety of things we do, to meet us and to find out what opportunities are available for them.

This year we are running a small pilot event on Saturday 17 June 2017 from 11.00am – 3.30pm centred round Manchester Museum, the Martin Harris Centre and Coupland Street with opportunities for tours of specific campus buildings. The aim is that this would become an annual event in the future.

If you are interested in taking part, then please register your interest by completing the Community_Festival_Proforma_2017 (doc) by 8 February 2017 and return to
