What is the Do Something Different Festival?
This year, in partnership with UEA, Do Something Different will be taking over campus for a week!
The best and most popular DSD events to date will be making a return for another round, as well as a mountain of brand new and exciting opportunities for you to learn new skills, learn new things and to have fun! From dance sessions, film-making workshops, language classes, sports training, open lectures and employability workshops, there is so much happening on campus that are all free to enter and open to all!
This is your chance to enjoy yourself, free from deadlines and teaching, and to do something that you enjoy! Every day of the week will feel like a party!

When is the Do Something Different Festival?
The Do Something Different Festival will be taking place between the 19th - 24th of February 2018. This will be a reading week for most students, so you will not have to attend lectures, and can attend as many events as you can handle!
Most schools have agreed to suspend deadlines on this week, and the following week, allowing you the most chance to try new activities and make the most of this week!
Postgraduate Students, Med students and Integrated Masters students will still have teaching as normal. To make our events open to all, we shall be ensuring that as many events as possible take place outside of teaching hours. We're also working on live-streaming some events so you can take part from home!
How do I get involved?
Our full programme of Festival activities will be released in January, which will then be available for you to book onto! Be sure to follow us for updates to make sure you get the spaces on the events you want!
If you are looking to organise your own DSD event for the Festival, we are currently collecting applications! During the festival, the SU centrally coordinate all rooms on campus, so booking early for your event will make sure you get the facilities you want!
