Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) opened its doors to the Lincoln community on Monday 25 June for its first Campus Showcase.

The Showcase was packed with talks, displays and campus tours to show visitors the range of facilities available to the local community at BGU. Services on display included business spaces, conference rooms as well as the onsite Venue cinema and Longdales House Bed & Breakfast.

Opening the Showcase from the grand surroundings of BGU’s award nominated Constance Stewart Hall, the Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of BGU, delved into the history and development of BGU alongside its ongoing work, both inside the University and around the world including international projects in Thailand and China:

“Across the last 150 years Bishop Grosseteste University has continued to grow and evolve and although, as an institution, we may be small, our impact is now felt across the world. One of our greatest joys, however, will always be finding opportunities to support the community around us”

His speech was followed by campus tours and demonstrations of available services; while guests were also treated to a talk on the University’s ongoing #Vote100 activities by Dr Andrew Jackson, historian and Head of Research, and two MA students.

With attendees including representatives from the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club and a host of local businesses the event also offered an opportunity for valuable community networking.

BGU is full of facilities and services that are designed to support and encourage organisations and businesses across Lincolnshire. If you would like more information or are interested in experiencing them for yourself you can find full details on our website.
