Lockdown Gallery

We want to showcase your lockdown artwork and photos. Just send us your photos to su.communications@brookes.ac.uk and we'll upload these to an online gallery. Maybe you're super proud of your banana bread, or you've found a really beautiful place in Oxford for taking photos. Or perhaps  you've learnt a new craft during lockdown or taken up painting - send us your creations. The top three will receive an A1 poster of their print, and the overall winner will receive a free calendar, plus 20 greeting cards with their winning image! Printed by Brookes Print. 

Great Brookes Bake Off 

Join us on Wednesdays for the Great Brookes Bake Off. If you're living in Brookes-managed halls, the kits will be delivered to your door. If you're not in a Brookes-managed hall, you can collect your kit from the Deli (JHBB) on Wed 11am-3pm. This week we'll be doing...bread week! Last lockdown everyone decided to learn how to make sourdough, this time around we thought we'd take it up a notch with flavoured breads. Tag us @BrookesUnion in your creations! 

Event Management Christmas Takeover Week

Our Event management students have planned a whole week of Christmas-themed events for you, starting Monday 23rd November. Full details coming soon - but they'll be covering everything from Christmas shopping to murder mysteries!
