UNIfy Festival is a new annual event – running from April 12 to 16 – which aims to showcase the links between the University and the city.
This year’s event will be online but future festivals will be based on-campus, allowing people to explore and get to know the University, its academics and researchers.
There are three broad themes, based around Heritage and Culture, Building Resilience and Enterprise and Innovation.
