RUTAM PRESENTS: SHOWTIME! - in aid of Daisy's Dream - After having to postpone our annual show due to the burst pipe on campus, RUTAM finally put on a septacuar evening of entertainment on 24th January 2019! It was a night of amazing performances from a variety of societies including RUTAM, ballet, tango, drama, harmony choir and kpop - all performing to our favourite songs from stage and screen. With a raffle and a popcorn and doughnut sale, we managed to raise a whopping £540 for Daisy's Dream!
