Trent Building to go red for Wear Red Day

October 16th, 2020

Trent Building on University Park will be lit up in red floodlights this evening (Friday 16 October) to mark Wear Red Day. 

The historic building will be illuminated from Friday evening to Saturday morning with the light visible to travellers on University Boulevard. 

Wear Red Day is an anti-racism campaign that takes place on Friday 16 October in England and Wales, and is organised by education charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC). 

Organising charity SRtRC delivers anti-racism workshops to more than 50,000 young people every year in schools throughout England, Scotland and Wales, as well as providing training to teachers. The charity’s educational work is crucial in challenging racist attitudes in society and breaking down barriers within communities. It aims to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message. 

The lighting takes place in the midst of Black History Month, which is being celebrated throughout October with a programme of online events open to both staff and students.
