Third year of Loughborough University’s Arts Week goes online with creative events

The University’s creative outlet LU Arts is pleased to announce the exciting and diverse programme of events for their virtual Arts Week.

This week-long event from 22-28 June celebrates and showcases the University’s creative community with a range of different live events taking place online in the form of interviews, creative workshops, informative discussions, presentations, readings and quizzes.

As well as academics from Loughborough’s School of Design and Creative Arts, you can also hear from the University’s inspiring students, gain insight from prominent artists and even uncover the art of wrestling (you read that right!). 

All members of the Loughborough community and beyond are welcome to take part, with sessions catering for all ages and backgrounds.

Other content, such as vlogs by final year Creative Arts students and a podcast by Andrew Dix on Loughborough’s cinema history will be available to download for free throughout the week from the LU Arts website.

A recording of the final year Drama students radio play Mystery at Morton Hall will also be available to download; this performance will have its first airing on Friday 12 June at 7pm via Facebook.

The full programme for the week is as follows:

I am grateful to all the talented staff and students who have contributed to this year’s event and would like to thank them for their time and efforts.”
