Do Something Different festival: ones to watch

 The Do Something Different Festival is in full swing and there's still time to sign up for the activities that are yet to come. The Festival is being coordinated by uea(su) this year and our Opportunities team have been hard at work making it happen. It's a week full of activities, where you can try something new, learn and develop skills and meet lots of new people. University is about getting outside of your comfort zone and trying new things, and this week is a great chance to take the plunge and do something different. 

This week we've already seen armed stage combat workshops, sign language tasters, touch rugby, filmmaking sessions and many more exciting events. If you've been involved in an event as an attendee or organiser and have pictures, we'd love to see them! Tweet us @ueasu_dsd . You can also fill out our feedback form here to tell us what you thought.  

The #FindOurPainting events have also started: a series of events that centre around the theft of the "Las Meninas" painting by two thieves. The painting was unveiled and stolen on Monday and the events will close with a court case in TPSCLT on Friday. If you spot the thieves around campus make sure to take a picture and tag it #FindOurPainting to help build the case against them.  

If you haven't managed to get involved so far, there's still time to do something different and plenty of events to choose from. Tomorrow there's First Aid training, where you can gain an accredited qualification to add to your CV, and a trip to the home of WW2 codebreaking Bletchley Park.

Check out all the events here and stay up to date by following @uea_dsd on Twitter!
