Work hard, play hard – it’s a tale as old as time, but it’s so important to ensure you factor in time for fun alongside your studies while at university.

So, we’ve put together a guide of what’s happening in Hereford this Spring!
Not literally, don’t worry! We know that true crime is a fascination for many people, students included, and if you want to really learn the secrets behind investigating notorious killers than book a ticket for Hunting Killers, a talk with top criminologist Mark Williams-Thomas. He’ll talk both about killers themselves, and also about what makes regular humans so obsessed with this dark topic…
