The University of Kent is welcoming over a hundred members of the Canterbury and District branch of the University of the Third Age to campus for the research showcase. We will share research projects, posters and performances, as well as finding out more about areas for future partnerships.

So if you are looking to take a break from exams or marking, need caffeine, have your own research ideas or just want to come and see what's on display, then please do join us for whatever part of the afternoon you can. You can further support your peers by filling out the odd feedback form, which would be much appreciated.
