Chinese Lion To Visit Buxton For Celebration Event
Date posted: 6 March 2013
As part of their BA (Hons) Events Management degree, Buxton students Beth Fox-Clinch, Phillip Oldroyd, Travis Brashaw and Paulina Odalska, have been involved in organising a wellbeing event for fellow students at their Campus.
This year's 'Get Sorted!' event, which takes place on Thursday March 14, will celebrate the Campus's diverse culture and community.
The four students were selected to organise the event through an internal vacancy portal. They will overlook important elements of the day such as a canopy tent to home a knitting workshop, equality and diversity cinema and a language exchange.
International dishes will also be available for purchase from the Bistro and students will be setting up stalls to represent their native countries.
Beth who is in her first year said: "Being part of 'Get Sorted!' provides me with the experience of setting up an event from start to finish, and there is so much happening that I cannot wait to see the end product. We have many opportunities to get involved with at the University and it is all very exciting!"
Second year student Paulina Odalska who is originally from Poland, said: "I particularly look forward to the Chinese Lion Dance which I did not get to see last year and I know it was a great success!"
Come and watch the Chinese Lion Dance at 12.30pm in the Dome, or join us at 11am when Bollywood Dancers from Leicester take to the stage.
