Durham Christmas Market
FdA Events Management students had the opportunity to hear from Colin Wilkes, from Durham Markets Company Limited, and how they organised this year’s Christmas Market in Durham.
This followed summative assessment for the L5 FdA Events Management students, who had to schedule the planning for a smaller but similar event. Colin was able to provide a de-brief on this activity.
The students were able to talk to Colin about organising a high profile event, who was also able to give an insight into what could go wrong at a high profile event.
It offers the students the opportunity to work on a realistic task and to get feedback from the actual event organiser.
The tourism and events industry has a lot to offer graduates both in the UK and abroad.
