English & Creative Writing lecturer releases new book I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind of Thing 

What do you get when you mix a father with severe PTSD after barely surviving the Vietnam War, a self-proclaimed clairvoyant mother with anger issues and no filter whatsoever, rivers of booze, an awkward but academically gifted son, and a daughter with a hidden disability and a mile-wide rebellious streak?  

Marshall Moore's new book, I Wouldn't Usually Do This Kind of Thing (Rebel Satori Press), is out now.

Head of Business & Experience Design speaks to Newsweek about Taylor Swift’s ticketing debacle  

Adrian Bossey, Head of Business & Experience Design at Cornwall Business School, joined the conversation about Taylor Swift’s recent issues with Ticketmaster. Speaking to Newsweek, he said: "Hugely popular artists like Taylor Swift often create a level of demand for tickets which is effectively impossible to fulfil due to the limitations of venue capacities and artist availability. Hence a vibrant secondary ticketing market is created, which is itself further stimulated by individuals attempting to buy tickets in order to sell them on.”

Events students delivered standout experiences at local venues

Jake says “I've had the pleasure of working with Queen many times over the years. These opportunities stemmed from publishing a passion project onto YouTube over eight years ago; an animated lyric video for Know Me Well by Roo Panes, around the time I started studying Film at Falmouth University.”
