Events for March

[Krystyna King | Events Secretary]

Not only is it National Nutrition month (the month before the chocolate eggs), there is also National puppy day on the 23rd and National Awkward moments day on the 18th March to enjoy.  Trust me, there’s a day for spinach and another one for chip and dip…

Still, if you have time to break away from your spinach or your puppy here is your list of up and coming events.  With the sun beginning to shine, don’t get stuck in the library all week and check out what the University and London has to offer!
