You’re invited to celebrate Christmas in style, as the European Students Society and GlobalBU host an event that showcases European culture and BU’s relationships across Europe.
On Friday 8 December 2017, from 11am – 5:30pm, the celebration will include:
Hearing about the student experience at BU and in Europe
Country-themed stalls showcasing European culture
Interactive session exploring the smells and tastes of Christmas
Live music, European food and informal networking.
Celebrations get underway from 11am on the ground floor or the Student Centre where you can explore the various country-themed stalls and some traditional dance performances.
At 12:30pm Dr Sean Beer will give a short talk about exploring the smells and tastes of Christmas followed by a traditional Wassail (a tradition dating back to Anglo-Saxon times to demonstrate charitable seasonal goodwill). Plus more live music and dance from BU students.
There will be a chance to sample some traditional food and drink from across Europe to help get you into the festive mood throughout the day, before our final event – an engaging look into a dystopian future with the amazing Marcus John Henry Brown in the Allsebrook Lecture Theatre – gets underway at 4:30pm.
Attendance is free, but places are limited for the Global BUzz Talk - please register via the Eventbrite page.
Throughout the day, there will be a chance to find out about the host of opportunities that are on offer for students and staff to travel overseas as part of the Erasmus+ programme.
