Festive Fun

It’s week 10 and the Christmas holiday is just around the corner! No more 9am starts or 6pm finishes, and just a whole load of mince pies and mulled wine. Term 1 has been extremely challenging and I’m looking forward to having a break at home, spending time catching up with my family and de-stressing. But Christmas at uni is still something great to experience.


The Christmas tree went up last week and campus is looking fun and festive. It creates such a nice atmosphere having all the Christmas decorations around, reminding you that it’s nearly hometime. The arts centre is full of decorations, as is the SU which makes your 9am starts just that bit more bearable. On campus there are some carol singing events, Christmas events within your own departments and much more!

Leamington Spa…

The Christmas lights switch on in the town centre really got everyone into the Christmas spirit. The event included live music, a whole parade full of craft stalls and more festive food than you could imagine! Now that it’s December there is also a Christmas market on in the parade every Sunday for both residents and visitors to enjoy. Leamington is such a lovely traditional town throughout the year and Christmas just makes it even more beautiful!


If you’re in need of a day out or want to get even more into the Christmas spirit, there’s nothing quite like the Birmingham German Market. With hundreds of food and craft stalls heaving with visitors, music pounding through the high street and even an ice rink, Birmingham is the best local place to go if you’re feeling festive. Don’t forget to take your change for some hot donuts!


Finally, if you’re feeling REALLY adventurous and want the whole Christmas experience in a huge city, London is the place to be. With the Winter Wonderland and the gorgeous lights on Oxford and Regent street, London is a great place to start celebrating the festive season.
