Cakes & Cocktails Society
We are a society that started in September 2013. We aim to bring together students with a common interest of desserts and cocktails.
As a society, we hold several events throughout the year such as drinks and desserts at pubs and bars, including The Standing Order, Revolution and the Slug and Lettuce. We also hold cocktail masterclasses where you get to make your own drinks behind the bar! We visited the Good Food Show in 2013 and 2014, as well as the Manchester Cake Show.
We are proud to say we were the winners of the Best New Society at the 2013/14 Students’ Union Awards. We also won a gold award last year. We want to continue into the next academic year with as many successful events as we have had during the past two years! There are no obligations to attend all of our events, you can simply attend any event that we hold that interests you and fits around your studies. We have met lots of lovely and interesting people this year, and we are looking forward to seeing lots of new faces as well as some familiar ones.
