The Can-Do initiative is providing a new marquee and outdoor spaces available for all students and staff to book from Monday 30th August till Sunday 19th September.

The Can-do initiative will build a new yet smaller marquee in the Spanish Gardens which will permit 35 people at a time to enjoy in person gatherings. This structure will have seating for 35 as well as 6 trestle tables. If you want to keep your meeting or social event outside in the fresh air, the site will also consist of 4 outdoor areas which will each feature 6 picnic tables. The perfect place to enjoy some late summer sunshine with your colleagues and friends. 

All bookings to be made in advance. Make a booking now by emailing
