The Full English Festival returns for a second year

Full English Festival

This week sees the return of UKC’s Full English Festival, a joint venture between two English societies that celebrates English in literature and culture.

Now going into its second year, the Full English Festival has been organised by members of the English Literature and Creative Writing Societies. Beginning on 1 June and spanning over the following four days, various events will be held on campus by top journalists and leading academics. Many of these will be held in the Full English Festival marquee, which will be located outside of the Templeman Library, and all of the events will be free to attend. The festival is also open to students from all disciplines, so you don’t have to be an English student in order to go along and enjoy what it has to offer.

During the festival you’ll have the chance to join in with workshops in poetry, song, journalistic and creative writing (but not all at once), listen to talks on a variety of topics, and join the creative writing students in their Book Project relaunch, amongst others. The festival will also spill out into town, with The Ballroom hosting a joint music and poetry night, run by the Full English Festival in association with the Live Music Society and Beautiful Town Music.

We spoke to Alice Bryant, one of the Full English Festival’s organisers, who said “I think I’m most looking forward to Luke Wright, as I saw him performing at Latitude and he was so much fun to watch”.

“I think that last year’s festival really paved the way for student led initiatives like this and I hope it inspires more in the future!”
