Manchester University Swaps Clapping For Jazz Hands


Share this article


The University of Manchester have banned clapping and applause amongst students, in favour of Jazz Hands. 

While initially this may seem like an unusual concept, it's not without good reason. 

The new initiative is to make it easier for students with sensory issues or anxiety and will now replace rounds of applause and whooping at student union debates, panels and talks. 

Here on 98FM's Big Breakfast, we did have to wonder though, what a big concert would sound like when you remove the clapping and screaming at the end of each song...
