Why Study Events and Festivals Management with us?

The course at Shrewsbury has been developed from the success of Events Management at the University of Chester, which regularly scores high levels of student satisfaction and employability prospects within the event and festival industry. The entire degree course is integrated through a study of the practices, processes, people and places that characterise event and festival activity at various levels. The course is underpinned by the active research and extensive experience of the lecturing team.



Guildhall is nestled on the banks of the River Severn, and only a short walk from the winding streets of Shrewsbury.
First constructed in 2004, and renovated for the arrival of University Centre Shrewsbury in 2015, the Guildhall building is used as the main centre for teaching and learning and offers fresh, modern and open spaces for students to enjoy.
The building boasts brand-new computer suites, lecture and seminar rooms, open-plan laboratories, a spacious library, as well as a student common room, lounge, fitness suite, courtyard, and on-site café.
