Returning to Reading or joining as a Fresher...?

Then the English society is a fantastic way to meet your new course friends and to socialise with new and like-minded people!

The 2018/19 committee are ready to continue the hard work of last years committee, and this year there will be MORE socials, with something for all types of student- introvert or extrovert!

See us dotted about during Fresher's Week in our red t-shirts – but don’t judge a book by its cover- please come over and say hi, and get to know us; we are a mixture of second and third years excited to chat and party with you all!

We are a sociable society for not only pure BA English Literature and Language students but for anyone with an interest in humanities and meeting new people.

We have subsidised socials at many of the classic Reading clubs with VIP areas on student nights…as well as Reading University's own club, 3Sixty.

You can also look forward to film nights, formals, theatre trips and advice drop-in sessions if you need help with anything course related or in general.

Give us a like on Facebook and also find our online discussion board, perfect for any lecture or essay queries. Follow our Instagram page too, here you'll find updates about the society, competitions, social updates and much more!

Members also get an exclusive 10% discount at Blackwell's, so why not join?!

We look forward to sharing memorable social events, culture and helping to guide you through the next three years of your University of Reading experience. 

Thank you :)
