The initiative has become a vital means of ensuring the academic curriculum continues to both meet and reflect of the modern demands of industry and to help students build the right skills, perspectives and attitudes for the future.
We’ve renamed our city centre venue, the Assembly Rooms Theatre, in honour of our former Chancellor and world-renowned opera singer, Sir Thomas Allen.
The venue will now be known as the Sir Thomas Allen Assembly Rooms Theatre.
