Fusion Festival

30 April - 4 May

Fusion Festival

The Fusion Festival is a celebration of research, education and professional practice culminating in events created and run by second year Events Management students at Bournemouth University between 30 April - 4 May 2018.

The 19 events will break down barriers, creating a continuous and fruitful exchange of knowledge. By working with staff, charities, organisations, institutions, and businesses, students will develop and co-create events and activities which will enable them to represent themselves, the Department of Events and Leisure as well as Bournemouth University.

All events will take place in the courtyard outside SUBU on Talbot Campus. The events are listed below.
