    We’re having our Xmas party a little early this year so you can fit us in before your exams. Join us upstairs in Southside Social (formerly Moo Bar/Meadow Bar) for drinks, chat and a last chance to forgo studying before becoming a shut-in for the festive season.
    This year’s costume theme is ‘Absurd.’ Whether that means coming as the Cheshire Cat, a fat ballet dancer, or someone wearing a Christmas jumper in November, it’s up to you. We’re giving you a lot of leeway with this one, so get creative and impress us. Person with the best costume gets a free drink!Check out the Facebook event here to let us know you’re coming.
