The School of English recently held a careers day which hosted fourteen guest speakers, each with a different angle on life after university. The speakers had mostly taken different paths, and had individual journeys to gain experience, knowledge and a true feeling of what they really wanted to do as a career. There was a combination of creatives, professionals, ex-students along with a couple of curve-balls!

Last night I got the fantastic opportunity to attend the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of the Twelfth Night. The theatre is located in the beautiful town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Home to the famous Anne Hathaway’s 500 year old cottage, and the gorgeous riverside, I really wish I had more time to explore the heritage of this town and all the stunning architecture. However, with the limited time we had, we explored in the best way possible, by visiting the local Wetherspoons! We then proceeded to marvel at all the Shakespearian themed goodies in the theatre’s shop. This was a treat for any English student, a whole shop dedicated to the legendary writer!
