Celebrate the achievements, of societies, volunteering and RAG, held on Friday 31st March at The Farmhouse. It has been another successful year so this evening is a fitting way to recognise our talented students!

The actual event is scheduled to run from 7pm to 10pm, however we recommend, where possible, students may prefer to arrive from 5.30pm. There are 2 for 1 drink deals on the bar up until 7pm and the venue has a very pleasant outside area to enjoy the guaranteed sunshine.

There are two prices for tickets.

£18 includes a Mini bus between the venue and 67 Bridge Street. The Minibus will run a shuttle service from 67 Bridge Street to the venue from 17:00 until 19:00. It will then run the same service back to 67 Bridge Street from 22:00 until 00:00 Midnight.Please also note there is a strict no Alcohol policy on the mini bus.

£15 is just your entrance to the event. (You must make your own way there). Swift run a bus service from the city center to right outside the venue and a timetable is available here. A taxi of 4 people traveling from the city centre will cost around £7.50 each way. There is ample parking at the venue.

All ticket options include a hot fork buffet and some drinks - exact details depend upon ticket sales. Please note the event is not profit making, ticket prices cover part of the cost of the event.

More details will be posed in the facebook event.

Please email Rhys White with any questions and/or dietary requirements/food intolerances you may have, once you have booked your ticket(s).

Please note if you are traveling from Buxton you must select the Buxton option (which details further guidance on transport which is provided as part of the ticket).
