The Harper Adams Advent Calendar


24 December 2022

Advent calendars can be filled with all sorts of goodies – from sweet treats to toys. This year we are offering our own virtual calendar, with a window a day shedding light on some of the best that Harper Adams University has to offer 
Each day we will celebrate an aspect of Harper Adams life, history, learning, research or community – celebrating the achievements of students, staff and supporters in the run-up to Christmas. 

The daily content will appear on our blogs and social media – and you can use this post as your “menu” and watch it grow each day.  
Wishing you a peaceful and enjoyable festive season!
