Beckett List

Hello ,

Happy February everyone. Across campus this month we are celebrating UK LGBT History Month, which is now in its fourteenth year. Have you spotted the rainbow lighting up our Portland Building?

A big thank you to everyone who came and chatted to us at the SU's Refreshers Fair last week, it was lovely to meet some of you and hear what you want to see in Beckett List. Your feedback is always so valuable. If there is anything you think we should be covering, please get in touch, you can email us here.
