An Aberdeen university is gearing up for a two-day festival celebrating literature, music, film, science and sport.
Aberdeen University will host to the sixth May Festival, which will see more than 100 events take place from today to Sunday.
Former Aberdeen alumnus Graham Stuart is among those in the line-up and will speak about his career in television production.
Also on the programme is a speech from Dr Elly Barnes, chairwoman of LGBT charity Educate and Celebrate, which helps transform schools and universities into LGBT-friendly places.
Public engagement officer at the university Dr Chris Croly helped organise this year’s festival and will also present a talk on the impact of the First World War on Aberdeen.
He said: “As a former historian, I’m looking forward to presenting how the war impacted the city because obviously that generation was missing its young men and young women were being introduced to industry for the first time.
Dr Heather Morgan, a lecturer in social science, will also be hosting talks on the science of health data.
She said: “I love May Festival – it’s a kind of a behind-the-scenes look at what we’re doing in the university and it gives people in the community a chance to talk informally with us about our research and ask questions.
“If you love learning, it’s a perfect event.”
The festival boasted more than 150 events last year. A full list of events and links to book tickets can be found at bit.ly/1LO4798
