THE UNIVERSITY of Warwick welcomed over 600 visitors to the start of the Resonate festival of arts and culture.

The event saw local residents attend a huge number of drop-in sessions – from literary adventures to dance classes, which were delivered to over 200 people.

The Warwick institute of engagement’s resonate programme has been putting on events, activities and talks at the university since 2021.

On Sunday there were sessions including Dante’s Divine Comedy through childrens books, drop-in sessions on Spanish for kids and Arab history and heritage, samba percussion and traditional Afro-Haitian Yanvalou dance.

The day also saw performances as well as Chinese culture and language learning through calligraphy.

Dr Kerry Baker at Resonate said: “This was our busiest festival yet and it was great to see so many people making the most of the brilliant range of exhibits and events on show across the campus.

“The event brought together so many people who all will have come away having learned something new, whether exploring a new language, learning a new skill, or hearing from an expert on a topic they are passionate about.

“Resonate has been running for three years now and the fact we can bring events like these to so many people for free is really incredible.”
