Christmas Shopping Evening

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… our annual shopping evening just in time for Christmas! Visit between 5pm and 9pm and enjoy a glass of mulled wine with a mince pie (donations welcome!) Relax and listen to Christmas carols by the University Choir, and take advantage of 10% off in the shop.
