Arts and culture

We host a range of creative and cultural activities across the University, celebrating our belief that the arts are essential to the enjoyment, understanding and development of our community and of society as a whole.

Events are open to all – members of the public as well as students and staff – and we hope you will take advantage of the richness of our artistic and cultural offering.

Dorich House Open Days

Dorich House Open Days
Saturday 21 February - Friday 10 April 2015

Enjoy a visit to this rare, art-deco-inspired, artist's studio home and take a guided tour at one of the open days. Guided tours last about an hour and begin with a 10-minute film of Dora Gordine's life, before exploring the studios, gallery and private apartments, and the roof terrace. Family workshops are held at the Dorich House Museum in the half-term and Easter holidays. Bookings for family workshops are essential.
