Reindeer Referendum

On Tuesday 14th November, we announced we will be hosting a Christmas market.

Following the announcement, we have been made aware of a student petition to prevent the appearance of live reindeer at our upcoming Christmas Market Event on 7th December.

The organisation we work with to source the reindeer send two staff on every standard booking and all handlers are fully-trained professionals who work with animals all of the time and who enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience of the animals in their care.  Additionally, the organisation have full licenses from both Animal Health and DEFRA, hold a Performing Animal License and are of course fully insured and risk assessed.

However, as we are a truly democratic, student-led organisation, we feel it is best to allow you to express your views on this issue. Therefore yesterday we opened up a survey to find out your views. We have not yet booked any live animals or reindeers for the event and will make our final decision as to whether we should once voting closes on Monday.

Please note: You will need to log into your student account but all votes are anonymous.
