The festive season kicked into full gear at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) last weekend as the University held its first Christmas Extravaganza. Over 100 children, along with their families and friends, came to visit Santa in his amazing grotto where they were entertained by puppet shows, magic shows, a circus workshop and face painting. The Extravaganza, which also played host to stalls and activities from the BGU Lincoln Teenage Market, received excellent feedback and now looks set to become a popular edition to the BGU events calendar. Funds raised at the event will be going to the BGU Foundation Fund which provides grants to support projects that enhance the student experience and help to make a difference to other peoples’ lives. The seasonal celebrations continue at BGU next week with our annual Christmas Carol Service where you are invited to join BGU staff and students in the spectacular surroundings of St Hugh’s Choir in Lincoln Cathedral. This year’s theme of “Looking into the Future” draws together the great Advent themes of the signs that point to the coming of the Saviour, with a foretaste of the Christmas Joy. Admission is free of charge and all are welcome.
