Come along and take part, or just watch and donate some clothes.

Free Food Thursday | 20/7
Thanks to your student exec Tommy Taco will be parked up at C Block from 12pm giving away free tacos. Don’t be late, first in first served!

Once Upon a Time | 19/7
Once Upon A Time, there was a little organisation called the UCSA. In Winter of 2014 the UCSA wanted to bring all students from far and wide together in one spot to enjoy the magic that winter has to bring. Creativity ran wild and ideas came from afar. With the power of live music, dancing and The Foundry, the creation of Once Upon a Time was brought to life. This could be the night of year when the moon shines bright, the stars align, and let your inner creature out! 

Come dressed in white, step into a white winter wonderland, and make it a night to remember.
