Cultural hub

Our cultural activities are important to us and our students. LU Arts offers you a wide variety of art events and creative development opportunities, including, in various venues across our campus, live music from celebrated performers, National Theatre Live screenings, talks, performance poetry and literature events and workshops.

If you are looking to get involved and develop your own creativity then why not join the University Choir or perform at Speech Bubble? If you play an instrument then you could join the String Orchestra, or take up the subsidised music tuition on offer (conditions apply). You can also take classes in pottery, painting, and drawing, or join a book club.
LU Arts also includes Radar, a contemporary arts strand, where we invite artists to respond to research. These projects allow you to engage with research in a completely different way that usually combines artistic outputs and discursive events like talks, workshops and seminars.
Along with the opportunity to join the String Orchestra, if you have musical talent you can continue to develop your skills with subsidised music tuition*, plus you have the chance to apply for the annual Music Scholarship Award*.
Based in the Martin Hall Building, LU Arts also has a number of music rehearsal rooms, equipped with pianos available for you to use, free of charge. LU Arts also has project, film and residency spaces available for you to use for creative activity*.
