Halloween with Host 2021

The spooky season is upon us, and it’s nice to see everyone getting into the Halloween spirit. So to celebrate our sites went all out with some truly spook-tacular decorations this year, from office spaces to communal lounges,  also hosting horror movie nights and parties for students with sweets, drink and a tarot table or two.

We’ve put together a look at some of these events, so a big thanks to everyone who took part, and congratulations to the winners of the various pumpkin carving/costume competitions. However you celebrated, we hope you had a fang-tastic time.

This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar.
