The welcome will be promptly followed by a walkabout to the nearby Nottingham Contemporary, giving the public a chance to catch a glimpse of the newly engaged couple.
At Nottingham Contemporary they will attend a Terrence Higgins Trust World Aids Day charity fair.
Afterwards, the visit will proceed to the Ransom Road campus of Nottingham Academy, where the couple will meet staff and young people benefitting from the Full Effect programme, which aims to prevent youth involvement in crime.
“The engagement’s really unexpected news. I’m really happy for them”
Third-year International Media and Communication student, Cecilia, said: “To be honest, I’m filed up with my assignments, but I would love to see [them]. The engagement’s really unexpected news. I’m really happy for them.”
