What's coming up in May?

Deputy President (Finance & Services)

The Easter holidays have come and gone, so what's happening this May?

Following a lot of student feedback collected through the department societies and constitutent unions, as well as interviewing users in our different venues and listening to the responses in the Student Experience Survey, I have been working with the Entertainments team to bring you a trial of different events this summer, tailored to what YOU want!

Whether you're an undergrad, postgrad or staff member, preparing for exams or working on your project, we have a wide range of social events for you! With Beit Quad Bars (Union Bar, 568, & Metric) and h-bar open all term, plus Reynolds Bar open ad-hoc, there's is a lot going on. Check it out below!


Beit Quad Bars: Events for everyone (UG, PGs, PostDocs, etc)

With a busy schedule of regular events kicking off with Quiz night on Tuesdays and ending the week with TGI Friday celebrations, there's something to keep you and your friends busy every day! We'll also be showing sports matches on our TV every day, highlights of the month including the Womens and Mens FA Cup Final games and the Grand Prix. On top of this, we also have special one-offs happening, including Post-Grad Graduation celebrations, and our brand new BBQ Week and Real Ale Festival events! Grab your friends, your work group, or your society and head over to Beit Quad for a catch up over food and drinks.
