About Us

Keele University is delighted to be hosting a calendar of exciting public events, ranging from our programme of inaugural lectures given by newly established Professors within the University, to live poetry readings, concerts and official ceremonies.

Keele has a vibrant arts programme, comprising art, music, poetry, performances and other cultural treats. We have our own art gallery, which is located in the Chancellor’s Building, and host a wide range of events throughout the year, including a full and varied music programme from the Keele Concert Society.

We are fortunate to have interesting collections, including the Stross Collection of art; a painting by LS Lowry; sculpture by Sir Jacob Epstein; the Raven Mason collection of Staffordshire ceramics; and our Special Collections and Archives located in the University library. In 2012 we unveiled the Forest of Light, a new sculpture by Diane Maclean, to commemorate our fiftieth anniversary.
