Extra-Curricular

Warwick Campus has a lot of activities for CLL students. We also advertise extra-curricular activities on our student newsletter and social media platforms.

Warwick Arts Centre

At the heart of the university campus is Warwick Arts Centre, one of the most exciting cultural venues in the country. It is home to two theatres, a newly refurbished concert hall holding 1500 people, a cinema and art gallery, allowing you to experience the best in UK and international drama, comedy and dance, hear all kinds of music from contemporary pop to classical, watch the recent box office successes as well as art-house movies, and see the latest contemporary art in the Mead Gallery. There are special concessions for students too – and all this is right on your doorstep!

Student Opportunities:

Student Reviewers
Students have the opportunity to review Warwick Arts Centre shows. Reviewers receive a free ticket if you can provide Warwick Arts Centre with a 500-word review within 48 hours of watching the show. Please email j.branson@warwick.ac.uk if you are a student of CLL and interested in taking part. There will also be an opportunity to review these shows on a 'Family Ticket' basis (usually 2 adults x 2 children). Due to the limited availability of these, students who express interest will need to submit their name to Student Engagement Coordinator, Lauren Elmore (l.k.elmore@warwick.ac.uk) and a submission will be chosen from a draw.
