Evening Activities – every night is different with a variety of activities on offer
A full social programme is provided at each campus, making every moment special. This ensures that every student is kept busy and has maximum opportunity to practise English whilst making friends with students from around the world in a fun and enjoyable environment.
A stunning programme of evening activities provides the fun that delivers the true ‘Millfield experience.’
At some of the big evening events all campuses join together, giving students the opportunity to meet up with friends and siblings based at other campuses.
Evening activities include the Millfield Extravaganza, Water Olympics, Discos, Talent Shows, House Song Competitions, and so much more.
Please note that the evening activities on offer change daily and so not all activities will be available every week or at every campus.
