The Winterfest show on Thursday, December 5, at Stratford Circus featured UEL performing arts students showcasing their work in theatre, dance, music, film, and creative writing.

The event was organised by second year Arts Management students to give their fellow students a platform and for the experience of producing an arts event.

Luis Sotelo, senior lecturer at UEL in Theatre Studies and Community Arts Practice, said: “I cannot believe that my students put on such an amazing event.

“The feedback that I have been getting from other lecturers and the public have been nothing but praise and they are all waiting for the next year so they can come again.

He added: “Winterfest has never been like this and I think it needed students to be involved for it to produce such a good turn out like it did.

“All the stress and pressure that was put on them paid off and I cannot thank and congratulate them enough on it.”
