Images of Student Work

Take a look at some of the events that our third year BA (Hons) Creative Events Management students have been involved with. In the first year of this course, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to conceive, plan and manage successful creative events. You’ll create a live event every year of the course and work with external client briefs and creative practitioners, learning to create programmes that respond to and develop audience interests.
