Fylde is turning Arty…workshops to produce some artwork for our George Fox Lounges.
Fylde has hosted a variety of international events this year. Our Fylde Goes Global saw 8 different country societies bring food and dance to the bar in March.

LIVE SCREENINGS OF CEREMONIES – FARADAY BUILDING
Guests without tickets to the ceremony can watch the ceremony live on big screens in the Faraday Building. This venue is staffed and fully accessible, with Degree Day programmes available on request. No tickets are required for the live broadcast venue.
It is unlikely that you will receive additional tickets; the majority of graduates receive two tickets. However you can apply for up to two extra tickets when you register and your request will be logged on a waiting list. Occasionally a limited number of extras become available in a specific ceremony or ceremonies. If this applies to your ceremony, your position on the waiting list will determine whether you receive any of the available extras.
You can find out how many tickets you have been allocated from Friday 30th May by logging back into your registration online.
Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit? are you good at business games? or would you just like to have a go at our Dragons Den meets the Apprentice competition?

I hope you can join us for a visit to Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire on Saturday 15th June. The Abbey itself was destroyed by Henry VIII in the 16th century but the ruins are spectacular and are situated at the bottom of the elegant water garden created in the 18th century. Also available to visit are the water mill, manor house, deer park and St Mary’s church.

We will leave campus (Chaplaincy Centre) by coach at 9am and leave Fountains Abbey at 5pm for the journey back to Lancaster. If you are a National Trust or English Heritage member then entry is free but please remember to bring your membership card.
We have booked a guide for the Abbey and Garden Tour which is included in the ticket. Sensible shoes and waterproofs are needed for this 2 hour walk (just in case summer doesn’t arrive in time for our trip).There are two tearooms serving delicious National Trust fayre in the grounds and a restaurant in the Visitor Centre, together with a gift shop and plant centre.
