Health & Sport Week 2017, which this year aims to address the four pillars of health and wellness - exercise, nutrition, sleep, mindfulness - kicked off yesterday with a launch event in Front Square.

Members of the Dance Society entertained onlookers with an energetic mix of traditional and modern dance which will hopefully inspire you to get out and do something during the week!
