‘Tis (almost) the season…

Sarah Redman, Online Editor, gives you a run-down of the best festive events coming up.

With nationwide forecasts of snow and warnings of severe winds, the weather is certainly beginning to look more Christmassy! Walking through Glasney yesterday evening, not one kitchen could be seen without Christmas lights and almost every kitchen had a tree to boot.

It seems like Christmas has come even earlier this year with the early birds hanging up their stockings during reading week! Although.. those Christmas adverts in August are a bit of a Kitchens everywhere have developed a case of Christmas fever.pain, ‘back to school’ mixed with Christmas cards in W H Smith is not a good look…

Nevertheless there was nothing to put you more in the mood for Christmas than the Christmas Extravaganza led by the FX Orchestra last Friday. It was truly a night to remember with a warm atmosphere, delicious vegan brownies and the last musical piece from Pirates of the Caribbean was definitely a surprise! Keep an eye out for more of the festive cheer before the next holiday from this lot with the Spring Concert happening March 2016!

Now for a break-down of the top 5 best Christmas events happening this week both on and off campus!
