King’s Sport and the Graduate School have organised a summer fête-style afternoon with stalls, a BBQ, fun activities, wellness sessions and team sports. Check out the timetable below for details of what will be happening throughout the day:

Come rain or shine the event will be going ahead and there will be plenty to do inside if it does start raining during the course of the afternoon.
