Description

Join us to celebrate the very best societies, fundraising and volunteering of the year! For the first time we’ll be bringing together RaG, Societies and Community Action groups to recognise and reward all the dedication and hard work that goes into running our student groups. We’re going to showcase your activities from the year with videos and photographs, it’s a time to look back at what you’re proud of and be recognised for your outstanding achievements. For just £15 a ticket the night includes a two course meal, entertainment and presentation of awards!
 

Don't forget to buy your ticket now!
Limited availability


Tickets are open to committees until the 3rd March after which they will be opened to all members. We will be trying to sit your committee and student group together, however the tables seat 10 people so if you can arrange your tables in 10s that would be brilliant. We want you to be together when your awards are announced! Tickets are limited so don’t miss out.

Most Improved Group

A group who has shown significant development this year, either through membership, events, or general activities. A group that has developed the quality of the experience that they offer, not just membership numbers.

Any collaboration with another student group counts, and we want to hear about the best! What did you do, and what was the impact?
