Why Study Events and Festivals Management (Shrewsbury) with us?

The course at Shrewsbury has been developed from the success of Events Management at the University of Chester, which regularly scores high levels of student satisfaction and employability prospects within the event and festival industry. The entire degree course is integrated through a study of the practices, processes, people and places that characterise event and festival activity at various levels. The course is underpinned by the active research and extensive experience of the lecturing team.

University Centre Shrewsbury

The University of Chester and Shropshire Council have established University Centre Shrewsbury to increase your Higher Education prospects and offer a student experience shaped to you.

Since welcoming our first cohort in 2015, we have strived to offer students a well-rounded and supportive university experience within the beautiful medieval town of Shrewsbury.

An impressive choice of facilities are available at our two principal sites; Guildhall and Rowley’s House. Their convenient location, just a short walk from the town centre, allows students to explore the picturesque streets alongside your studies. 

The newly renovated Guildhall building is used as the main centre for teaching and learning. It provides fresh, modern, open spaces for students, in which you will find brand-new computer suites, lecture and seminar rooms, open-plan laboratories and a spacious library.

Outside of the classroom you can relax in the student common room, lounge, fitness suite, courtyard, and on-site café.


Sitting within a loop of the River Severn, Shrewsbury is a vibrant and cultural town, steeped in history and surrounded by natural beauty. With cobbled streets filled with original and one-off independent restaurants and shops, and a broad range of pubs, clubs, wine bars and restaurants to enjoy at night, there’s lots to explore and enjoy as a student in Shrewsbury.

If it’s sports that you’re interested in, there is a good selection available: from outdoor adventures on the Shropshire Hills to daily cycles through the town centre. Shrewsbury is also home to a number of events and festivals throughout the year, such as: Shrewsbury Folk Festival, The Big Busk, Shrewsbury Food Festival and the Shrewsbury regatta; an annual rowing event.
