Young people on the National Citizen Service (NCS) scheme will be coming to Southend Campus this summer.

This is the second year that Event Essex has secured this booking. If you have any queries please contact Mark Smith, Business Development Manager at Event Essex.

New Generic Timetabling and Room Booking Email Address (Southend Campus)

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 3:16 am

Please be aware that we now have a generic timetabling/room booking email address for Southend Campus:

Think southend campus timetabling (sctt).

This will help us keep all the timetabling requests in one place in the absence of a Timetabling Officer at Southend Campus throughout the summer and autumn term.


Could you please ensure that you use this email address for all room booking and timetabling correspondence for Southend Campus from Monday 24 July 2017.

This will be a challenging time for the Student Services Hub on this particular front, so thank you in advance for your patience and timely requests.

Bring all the family to the free outdoor cinema season running on the Big Screen every Saturday in August.

Celebrating the wonder of Computer Generated Imagery  (CGI) and animatronics, The Big Screen presents films that mark key milestones in the developments of these techniques which have transformed cinema.

Bring a rug or chairs and settle down for a filmatic feast beginning on Saturday 5 August with the monster of all CGI movies, Jurassic Park. The following Saturday it’s the Pixar classic Toy Story and then, on Saturday 19 August, see the late David Bowie in Labryinth, credited with the first use of a CGI animal.

And on Bank Holiday Saturday 26 August, enjoy family favourite,  Finding Dory.

All the films start at 6.00 pm. Visit for more details.
