Bowling at Westfield
Once-upon-a-dual-carriageway there was only bowling. Sticky carpets, crappy hot dogs, warm beer. It pretty much sucked. Now bowling is here. It’s foo-ooo-oood, fine cocktails, crisp beer, good people. And oh yeah, bowling.

Come along to this talk about the future of Foundation courses and join the fight! Foundation Art and Design courses are at risk of being cut by the Government. Students do not have any financial support. UAL is making big changes to the course this year which could reduce the number of spaces available. The fees system is discriminatory: depending on how old students are, or where they are from.

Fabric Research Tour
Learn stuff early. This is generally good advice, but never more so than when you’re starting an intense fashion course! Come with us on a tour of Berwick street, London’s premier fabric market. Ask questions about fabrics, get swatches and generally become acquainted with an area that will become a big part of your life over the next 3 years. All this before your course even starts. Ace.
