Our Black History Month Festival-for-a-day will showcase and celebrate Black culture. Join us to celebrate with a variety of performances from singers, musicians, dancers and poets and enjoy the food from some of these cultures. The Festival-for-a-day will include representation from a variety of different services across the University, including Student Wellbeing, Careers and Employability and Student Enterprise and stands from a range of local businesses. This year’s National Black History Month theme is ‘Saluting our Sisters’, which highlights the crucial role that Black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities
