A University Challenge style event between BU and another local university
University Challenge has been a TV hit and a favourite for many generations over the years, but have you thought of running a University Challenge styled event as part of the Festival of Learning?
Why run this style of event?
This events catchy theme will be recognisable to many and you really could attract a large audience. If you can create an entertaining session, which encourages audience members to come together to back BU against a local university, you could generate a real interest in your event.
Perhaps you may consider having a studio audience format which tests our brightest BU sparks against a local opposition? This would generate a great atmosphere and has proven to be a hit in previous years.
If you are looking to enagage a widespread audience demographic this may be the event idea for you. In addition, this will provide a fantastic networking opportunity for yourselves, as you interact with the general public.
This style of event has the potential to leave audience members with a new found passion for learning and the opportunity to pass on the experience they had to their friends and family. This will hopefully result in BU being recognised as leading experts in Research and Knowledge Exchange.
