10 of Our Biggest Events Next Term
As this term winds down and we reach the last few events, let’s take a look at 10 of the biggest events that next term has to offer.
This term is very nearly over. Winter Wonderland has been and gone, two of our three Christmas club nights (just The Xmas Bop left!) have been and gone and the last couple of deadlines draw nearer (don’t worry, you’re nearly there – keep going!).
We’re sure you are all going to have a lovely, and well-deserved, Christmas break so make sure you take time to relax, recuperate and chill out. But for those of you who can’t wait for next term to begin, let’s take this moment to get you excited for what next term has to offer.
1) The first Grand back – 15th January
The first Grand back is a massive new year welcome to the brand new term – a packed Clapham Grand where you can see all those friends you missed over Christmas.
2) Re-Freshers Fair – 17th January
Re-Freshers Fair brings back all those great things from Freshers Week, so you can join any societies or teams you might have missed and we can give you a big welcome back and a big welcome to all our new international students.
3) Volunteering Week – 19th – 23rd February
A great week to get involved in, with loads of opportunities to raise money for charity, get involved in various activities and events and bulk up that CV of yours.

8) Frigby Bop – 5th May
One of the biggest Bops of Term 2, coming right after Frigby, one of the biggest sporting events of the year (Digby vs Froebel in college football) has happened. Celebrate or commiserate with your college at Bop!
9) RSU Awards – 29th May
One of the classiest, most prestigious nights of the year – a chance to see some of our best staff members justly rewarded for all of their hard work and endeavour over the year.
10) Summer Ball – 2nd June
Perhaps the biggest event of the entire university year – our very own RSU Summer Ball! Split into two parts, this festival-like event promises amazing stars performing on our stage, with all the trimmings of a proper festival to boot; food, drink, dodgems, rides, photos and more! The day part promises summer fun, the night part promises glamour and glitz! This is one not to be missed!
