Arts Extra

Passionate about the arts? Like theatre, music, art or dance? Join Arts Extra!

Arts Extra is a new initiative for 2014 which aims to support and promote the huge diversity of arts and culture events on and around campus.

Our ambition is to create a team of motivated, creative students, interested in making a difference to the cultural life of the University.
