Celebrating our first Community Fun Day: tell us what you thought

(28 June 2019)

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make our first Community Fun Day such a wonderful success.

Over 1,000 people visited our marquee on Palace Green, Durham, on Saturday 22 June.

The idea was to bring as many of the huge variety of inspiring activities organised by our staff and students as possible together in one place, for an event which was free and open to all to enjoy.

There was live music and theatre, sports, dancing, hands-on science, arts and crafts, stalls, exhibitions and much more.

Tell us what you thought

We’ve had some very positive feedback – both on the day and through social media.

We’ll also be looking carefully at the many feedback postcards returned to us at the event.

And we’d love to hear your thoughts. What did you enjoy? How would you improve things?
