University of Winchester Christmas Café open to local community on Christmas Day

6 Dec 2017

The University of Winchester is offering a warm welcome to local people on Christmas Day when it opens the doors of one of its campus coffee shops to serve free coffee, tea and cakes once again this year.

The Learning Café is open from 9am-1pm on Monday 25 December. All members of the local community are welcome to come along for free refreshments, company and conversation.

"We hosted our Christmas Café for the first time in 2015 and hope that it will become an annual tradition for local people to join us here at the University on Christmas morning," said Professor Elizabeth Stuart, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, who is running the Café.

"Although Christmas is a very special time of year, it can also be a difficult time for many people. As a University, with compassion as one of our core values, we consider hospitality towards our neighbours and the local community an important part of what we do."

The Learning Café is located on the top floor of the University Centre, opposite the pedestrian entrance to the West Hill Cemetery, on the King Alfred Campus, Sparkford Road, Winchester SO22 4NR.

Details of other events taking place at the University of Winchester from now until the end of March can be found in our What's On brochure available online at this link.
