The festivals and events calendar has been developed as a practical resource to use as a guide to support academic and wider event planning, it includes details of key religious dates, awareness raising dates, term dates and major national and international days of celebration or memorial.
We have made significant efforts to ensure the accuracy of this information and to represent the breadth of our University community, but we cannot guarantee full inclusion or accuracy of diversity days, especially where these are planned by other organisations.
We are continually trying to improve the information we provide, therefore if you have constructive feedback or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Sources of information we have used are external faith bodies, diversity organisations and the BBC Religion and Ethics website.
*Please note: Jewish festivals usually begin at sundown on the previous day.
Although the calendar is accurate, some dates may vary regionally because they are determined by the lunar calendar.
