Nursing Students Attend Career Event

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 3:29 am

Nursing Students from the Southend Campus attended a Nursing Times Careers  event on the 4 November in central London. Many employers attended the event and were available for students to talk to and provide advise on job opportunities and careers trajectory. The day also provided a series of talks that ranged from application form writing to motivational speakers. Student feedback was very positive and they expressed how valuable the experience was as it enabled them to speak to potential employers and learn about new services that being developed.

Congratulations to Akua Hodo, second year MSc mental health nursing who won one of the raffle prizes. Akua won a  two night stay in the Park Plaza London.

Clifftown Theatre presents:

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 3:27 am

Knight of the Burning Pestle

30 Nov – 2 Dec, 7:30pm / 2:30pm (2 Dec matinee) ~ £10 full | £6 concession

A farcical Jacobean comedy with a modern twist, this production is a laugh-out-loud, sword-fight-fuelled, fun-for-all-the-family event! The audience have paid for their tickets and they know what they want; why shouldn’t they express their opinions? Why shouldn’t they be allowed to take part? Why should they simply watch a play when they can experience a play?***

7-9 Dec, 7:30pm / 2:30pm (9 Dec matinee) ~ £10 full | £6 concession

A firm favourite at Clifftown every December, this year will be no different! If you back combed your barnet to the B52s; if you  danced the blues in red shoes to David Bowie; if you tuned in each week to catch the bedlam of The Tube – and even if you didn’t! – then this year’s 80’s cabaret could be just the show for you! Sit back, relax, and rewind through time with voluminous vocals, tremendous trumpets and some devilishly dodgy dance moves!
