We’re delighted to announce that the Staff Festival website is now LIVE!  Visit the website to browse the many activities and events planned for the day, and book onto the ones that interest you. This year, we’re really encouraging everybody to get involved in the Staff Festival - so make sure to try something different!

This year’s festival focuses on:

  • Improving awareness of health and wellbeing opportunities at work.
  • Showcasing academic research in wellbeing topics.
  • To act as a staff reward following another academic year.
  • Building community, promoting our networks, team events and challenge.

We are delighted this year to welcome our Academics to deliver seminars and workshops including: Professor Wendy Robinson, Dr. Eilis Hannon, Dr. Caitlin Knight, Dr. Inmaculada Adarves-Yorno and Dr. Barney Dunn.

All activities are free, and there’s a range to suit everybody, so do take the time to have a look...
