Social, Cultural and Community Engagement at UEA 

UEA offers many public - and often free - events, both on- and off-campus , alongside public access to the Sainsbury Centre, Sportspark and open spaces on campus.

From live music in the iconic Nick Rayns LCR (Lower Common Room) and translation workshops, to UEA Lasdun Lectures and partnership with the Norwich Science Festival, UEA encourages and invites meaningful dialogue with a public audience.

Public events include drama, seminars, workshops, exhibitions, talks, meet-ups, lectures and screenings - from UEA Inaugural Lectures and participation in Noirwich, to poetry readings, history talks and public speaking.
