The Stannary Bar

Throughout the year, the Stannary, our on-site 1,250 capacity venue, continues the fun with regular weeknight events including quizzes, film screenings and open mic nights. It has featured some outstanding live acts and big-name DJs such as Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Chase & Status. Check out www.facebook/stannary to see what’s happening.

External trips and shows

FXU also strive to give you the best opportunity to get off campus and explore Cornwall’s culture. A range of theatre trips and daytime excursions are arranged all year round. Be sure to read our weekly e-newsletters, like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and check our website for up to date information about upcoming events.

Student-led events and projects

Do you have an idea for an event or project that you think other students would want to get involved in? FXU understands that there is no better place than university to make a difference and we offer you the support to do this! We can provide advice, support and may even be able to offer you financial help to get your student-led events and projects off the ground. If you have an idea that could benefit other students, we want to help you provide that experience. In the past we have advised on and helped finance a number of different events, including a Bioblitz (environmental awareness event), an Islamic Cultural Festival, a LGBT social event and many more. Your first step is to come in and talk to us about your event or project. From there we can give you the advice, support and contacts you need to get going. Or, if you’re feeling ready to, why not complete our student-led event/project funding application form and send it in to us? Funding is subject to approval; make sure you take a close look at our criteria whilst you complete the application. Get your application pack by popping into the FXU office or email
