Re-unite//DeFreshers

The end of term is nigh and we’re so excited to kick off our official promo for the end of term events this week! From June 22nd – July 2nd, there will be 2 types of celebrations going on: Re-unite and DeFreshers.

Re-unite is a collaboration between the SU and the RNCM. After working alongside Programming, Catering and the Operations team, we’ve manage to score a 2 week celebration at the end of term, combining fun events with performances and bringing back the all important RNCM bar atmosphere. From 4pm each day the communal areas will be transformed to open up for socialising, listening to great performances and having some tasty food and drinks (Kaltenberg anyone?).

Look out for more information from the Programming team about the performances that will be happening. All students can apply to play on the Pop-up stage at this link by 12pm on Friday 4th June! https://forms.gle/VTfSWgxGX42mtGYb9

As part of Re-unite we have:

  • Jam Night (A mix between the Brodsky Jam and Freshers’ Week Bandeoke)
  • Play at First Sight (a brand new event!)
  • Post-Grad Pub Quiz
  • BINGO!

DeFreshers was our genius plan before this academic year even started. When we decided to replace our traditional Freshers with a Welcome Week (to avoid club night/ party night disappointment), we came up with the idea of DeFreshers – effectively a Freshers week for the end of the year! Why have we never thought of this before? The weather is good, exams are over, and there’s no awkward introductions – it’s the perfect event that should stick around post-pandemic!

We never expected to still be following social-distancing rules, but we have done what we can to make our very first DeFreshers a special one. We will be releasing event-specific info on our blog and our social media over the next 2 weeks, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled!

We have:

  • Leavers’ Ball (Priority tickets for leavers on sale Friday 4th June with General sale opening Monday 7th June)
  • Old School Sports Day (Get your competitive heads on for an inter-school competition, including a football tournament in collaboration with our RNCM Football Society)
  • Party night! (TBC, dependent on Government guidance. Full announcement to be made after Boris takes the stage on June 14th)
