Relax + Unwind at the Octagon

29 April - 31 May, Monday-Friday 09:30-16:30

During the hectic exam period, take a moment away from the stress. As well as a quieter space to take a break, we will have free fruit, the usual tea and coffee (plus herbal teas!), relaxing music and quick activities to give you a rest from study. We’ve also got hints and tips to help with stress and revision. Every day from 11:00-14:00, we will be running a 5 minutes volunteering of craft activity! Why not drop in? For more information email
