As 2017 comes to a close, a lot of societies will have big events planned to celebrate the end of term or the end of the year. From Christmas meals to formal balls, each event will have its own little quirks and attractions. Here’s a sample of some upcoming events for the month, and their currently available details!
‘The Time the Grinch Stole Christmas… But Actually Didn’t’
With a busy time coming up, Shoreline Theatre performances are always incredibly well put together and full of energy and passion. To see just how much Shoreline love what they do, grab a ticket when you can – the pantomime will be showing 11th-13th December. For a Christmas treat and a hilarious night, come along to the pantomime and get stuck in with the audience interaction!
Anyone is welcome to join SUMSoc and the Maths department for their Christmas meal for lecturers and students alike! There will be a 10% discount for SUMSoc members, and the meal will be held in the last week of term.
On the 2nd into the 3rd of December, Tolkien Society will be watching all of the animated Tolkien movies within 24 hours. If you have not yet experienced the beauty of Gollum drawn in such a way that he looks like a frog, then be sure to not miss this event!
On the 6th and 7th December, Show Choir will be delighting their audiences on two fun-filled evenings with an array of songs from multiple genres and eras, including group numbers and solos.
On Friday 8th December Hogwarts society shall be hosting the Yule Ball for the seventh year in a row. Come along for a wonderful night of food, drinks, dancing and fabulous decorations!
…and many many more! Christmas events are always fun if a society chooses to host one, so be sure to plan ahead to make sure you can attend the ones you’d like. Enjoy December and the holidays, and may your societies make the last few weeks of term enjoyable!
