The University of Leicester has unveiled a packed year-long calendar of events to mark its 80th anniversary.

The University, which is celebrating a record year for recruitment, research income and elevation into the top 20 universities of the UK in national league tables, has plenty on offer to appeal to everyone.

There is a rich choice of lectures - the University's academic staff have lined up talks on topics as varied as the destruction of English medieval sculpture to the development of universities from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Guest speakers this term include graduate Sir John Stevens Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, and celebrated film maker Lord Puttnam. Later in the year you can hear from Nobel Laureate and honorary graduate of the University Sir Harry Kroto and a special concert featuring honorary graduate Dame Felicity Lott is scheduled.

A number of other musical events are on the timetable and there is a landscape exhibition in the Richard Attenborough Centre as part of the programme. In addition, all the regular public events held at the University - lectures, concerts and exhibitions - are also continuing apace.

details are available on the University website: www.le.ac.uk or by ringing 0116 252 2415.
