University to recognise influential figures at Heritage Open Days weekend
1 August 2019
Leaders, lecturers and students of the Leeds Beckett University community past and present will be celebrated at this year’s Heritage Open Days weekend.
The university will open its doors to the community and share its history on Friday 20 – Sunday 22 September.Themed around ‘people power’, this year’s event will shine a light on those who have worked across many decades to put students and colleagues at the heart of the university’s core values.
They will be the focus of an exhibition in the Great Hall at the university’s Headingley Campus, which will also feature a tribute to the colleagues and students who relocated to Scarborough following the outbreak of World War II 80 years ago.
As part of a packed weekend, there will also be activities taking place across the estate, including outdoor games on the acre and tours led by the Friends of Beckett Park.
Last year’s event, which focused on inspirational women, drew in hundreds of guests, colleagues and students over three days.
Further details will be released soon, so keep an eye on the events page for more information in the near future.
