The Politics Ball
Our annual Politics Ball takes place every March/April. The event was established in 2016 and has since grown to become a regular fixture on the Society Calendar. Every year, the venue is decided by the Politics Committee. This is a Black Tie event and students are treated to a champagne reception, followed by entertainment, a three course meal and a night out. Furthermore, lecturers are in attendance, allowing students to mingle with members of staff in a relaxed setting.
