Top 5 Welcome Events
Welcome is fast approaching, so we at Phantom thought that perhaps we should get a head start on it. We know it’s tough fitting everything in when you first arrive, getting to know the place, settling in, attending lectures and inductions whilst squeezing in all the fun is almost definitely a challenge. So we’ve cut it down to 5 of what we think are the best, and we’ve tried to keep it varied, just in case you can’t manage it all.
1. Outdoor Cinema
14th September 19:00- 23:00
This was an excellent event last year! We’re so glad it’s back, if you’re looking for a quite event that doesn’t revolve around the drinking then this is one you should be attending. Oh and did we mention free pizza? What’s not to like? Well maybe the film, but that’s okay because you guys will get to pick! The Union run a poll so it will surely be something the majority of you like. And if not, well there’s still the free pizza.
2. Masquerade Ball
22nd September 21:30- 4:00
If you’re interested in a boozy night however there are several on the cards. This is the one you’ll spend two weeks waiting for. Pendulum take over the Academy for the biggest party. This event is always a sell-out and the highlight of the year so make sure you get a ticket early. Kick things off even earlier with a pre-bar at Bridge Street.
3. UV Party feat. Big Narstie
15th September 21:30- 4:00
If you can’t wait that long then don’t worry there’s plenty of other events in the run up to the big one that you can party at. Like the UV Party, make sure you’ve got some neon garb for this one. This year Big Narstie is sure to entertain, no to mention they’ve got a BBQ. There’s another pre-bar at Bridge Street for this one so if you like getting your drink on early then make sure you head there.
4. Gaming Sundays
17th September 10:00- 23:00
If you’re looking for a hangover cure, or just a nice relaxed way to spend a Sunday then this one is for you! This one is free for everyone, with plenty of board games or you can bring your own. Not to mention this place does brilliant food that just seems to get better each time you go; pizzas, fry-ups, burgers, you name it. Oh and great drinks offers too, whether you prefer a coffee or a pint.
5. The Welcome Fair
18th & 19th September 10:00- 16:00
The event everyone always talks about, the fair! What more could you want, freebies, sports teams and societies. The perfect place to get properly stuck into life here. Oh and did I mention Phantom will be there too? PLUS more free pizza!
