Beltane Networking

From 2010-2020, Beltane Breakfasts and Twilights took place at various venues across the city. These were informal events where members of the Beltane community share their experiences of aspects of public engagement around a theme. University researchers and support staff, along with people from organisations that wish to work with universities, had a chance to share information and ideas over bacon rolls, coffee and cake.
