*Fully Booked* Free Trip to Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse


Thursday 21 February 2019


10am - 2pm


Meet outside Congregation Hall
*Fully Booked* Free Trip to Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse

Visit a working farm, ride on a tractor, and learn about the family who worked at Gressenhall Farm from 1777 to 1948.

Please bring along Campus Card to this event.

Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is a great rural life museum which includes history on the family and workhouse from 1777 to 1948. This trip will give an insight into the tough work the people who lived here endured. There is also live working farm with horses, pigs, cows, sheep, chickens and more, as well as a free (donations accepted) tractor ride.

This is a great free half day out to go explore something new that you may not normally visit. As Gressenhall is in the countryside and difficult to get to via public transport, we have provided the transportation. Mini bus departing outside of congregation hall at 10:00 with a journey time of around 30 minutes. 

Please book your tickets for this event above!

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
