On-campus activities

Our campus is a hive of artistic activity and a microcosm of the creative industries all in one place.

We run a range of free on-campus activities throughout the year so that your students can experience life at a creative arts institution first-hand.

Arts workshop days

Our exhibition workshop days give students the chance to get stuck into practical arts workshops whilst exploring the themes of our contemporary art gallery exhibitions at TheGallery and the unique Museum of Design in Plastics. Led by our expert AUB tutors, activities will be themed around current exhibitions, with plenty of chance to explore our creative campus too.

Theatre and dance shows and workshops

Each year, AUB Productions delivers a series of collaborative live productions, involving students from BA (Hons) Acting, Costume, Performance Design and Make-up for Media and Performance courses. These productions include exclusive Open Dress Rehearsal shows open to school and college groups. This is an incredible opportunity for your students to experience the thrill of live performance and learn about how many disciplines work together to create a production.
