Keele has a vibrant arts programme, comprising art, music, poetry, performances and other cultural treats as well. 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, programme of inaugural lectures, live poetry readings, concerts and official ceremonies.

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.
