The event, which takes place on Saturday, June 8, is being organised by Charlotte Humpage, aged 21, from Congleton and Bethan Miles, aged 20, from Wilmslow, who both study Events Management at the University and are currently undertaking their second year Work Based Learning module.

The afternoon is an opportunity for prospective postgraduate students interested in the MRes in Storytelling and MA Creative Practices in Education to find out more about the courses and learn more about the experiences of previous students.

Alumni are also invited to attend, sharing their experiences and advice with current and prospective students, providing insight into the careers they could have once they have graduated and networking with peers.

The event is informal and relaxed, with plenty of opportunities to share stories and experiences. There will also be live music and a variety of creative and interactive workshops, including: Stavros Kokkinos providing music entertainment; John Renshaw providing a visual arts workshop; Alexandra Swift performing a theatrical piece and more to be announced.

Charlotte said: “I am delighted to be organising such a creative event. It’s different to anything I’ve ever organised before and I am excited to see how all the different parts will work together. I am also excited to see everyone come together and share their love of academic interests, and help new people meet and gain connections that could possibly last a lifetime.”

Bethan added: “I am thrilled to be a part of the launch of this event, which aims to bring together past, present and future students. We hope that they can share and develop relationships in a creative and diverse way, in the cultural hub that is Storyhouse. We hope that this event strengthens the relationship between the University of Chester and Storyhouse for years to come.”

Alex Clifton, Artistic Director at Storyhouse, said: “Chester is a wonderfully diverse and creative city to learn in. We are delighted to be hosting such a positive event for prospective students.”

The event takes place on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Storyhouse in the Garret Theatre, from 1.30pm until approximately 3.30pm.
