Our Events

In 2016/17, we had a great year with events ranging from:

  • Guest speakers talking on issues such as Israel/Palestine and events in conjuction with the Politics Department who hosted the likes of The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow and former UKIP MP Douglas Carswell... more exciting speakers to come! 
  • Fancy dress socials including Pub Golf and Shit Shirt.
  • Winter, Spring and Summer Formals.
  • Massive joint events with other societies such as MUN and Economics.


We want to carry onwards and upwards into 2017/18, with a trip abroad planned and a great mix of socials, academic events and peer support!
