Postgraduate Social Event (24th November)

The Postgraduate Academic and Support staff at SaSM, cordially invites you to join us in 20150929_161533food1the Culinary Arts Studio (Greynore 2) for our annual social gathering.

The SaSM Postgraduate Social Event is being organized on Tuesday 24th November 2015, at approx 16.30hrs onwards in the Culinary Arts Studio located in the Greynore 2 building of the Darley Road Site.

We would like to invite all our SaSM PG students to our annual gathering. We could like you bring a dish of food, which can be enjoyed by everyone. We do not want you to go to any great expense, but would love to try something from your homeland, region or area, this does include the UK.

We would encourage you to speak to your course reps to coordinate the types of food you might like to bring, and arrange for safe and adequate storage in the Culinary Arts Studio (Greynore 2 building), Darley Road campus, prior to the event.

The course reps will also be liaising with the organizers regarding numbers, so do please sign up with them as soon as you can. If you do not have a course rep yet, then maybe someone might like to step up just for this event.

We can provide basic cooking facilities if you need to cook something on the day, but this will have to be arranged with us in advance. We can also assist you with baking and cooking the items on the day if that helps. We will be providing a selection of beverages for everyone to enjoy…
Last years event was a great success and we enjoyed a number of delights like ‘modern birds nest soup’… ‘Polish dough balls’… ‘Hungarian biscuits’…and even ‘mince pies’ from Asda!!!

We look forward to seeing you
Regards The SaSM PG Course Leaders

Autumn afternoon field trip to Denbies Wine Estate, Surrey, UK


On a sunny day in late October, the MSc Tourism, Hospitality and Events students at the School of Sport and Service Management spent an afternoon at Denbies, the UK’s largest  Wine Estate.

The students enjoyed a presentation on the importance of terroir for great tasting wine, learned about the different grape varieties grown at Denbies, and shown around the extensive wine cellar. The afternoon ended with a delicious tasting of the English wines grown on the estate.
