Destresstival 2 is coming - More information coming soon...

This year the Students’ Union will be holding its first ever De-Stresstival!


De-Stresstival is a week-long event giving students the opportunity to have some fun and de-stress! It will allow students to take part in exciting activities, alongside workshops that are designed to be relaxing and promote well-being. We also aim to raise awareness of mental health, educate students on plagiarism and to promote the advice and support provision we have here at the Students’ Union.


Here’s a little of taste of what’s happening…


Have some fun, relax and de-stress

For students who would just like to take a break from work, De-Stresstival is here to fulfil your needs! There will be a variety of games such as a piñata, painting your own gnomes, bracelet making, and much more.

For those of you, who want something a bit more relaxing, come to our Canine Calming Room to cuddle our four legged friends!

Everyone is welcome to join the Sabbatical Officers during the evening, a couple of things they have planned are an open mic night in Belle Vue and an evening in the Global Café.

Lastly, what better than FREE FOOD! De-Stresstival will be giving out free Pizza!! Along with drinks and other nibbles.


Burn off some excess energy in our “Back to School” sports day (Thursday 26th October, 2-4pm, Canolfan Brailsford)

There will be a chance for everyone to compete in our sports event at the Brailsford dome; the fun activities will include egg and spoon race, sack race, three-legged race, etc.

Academic Advice

For those of you facing any issues or wanting some advice, our Academic caseworker will be 1 hour drop in sessions on certain days to listen and help. Student Services will also be joining in providing plagiarism workshops (you will need to register to attend), to help you understand what plagiarism actually is and how many different types of plagirising there are.
