Saturday 9th – A-List Returners

The best way to kick off the start of a semester is with the first LCR night of the year.

Sunday 10th – Big Bob’s Big Quiz

This one off massive quiz night being hosted in the LCR is going to be epic. With big prizes on offer you’d better be thinking up your team names already.

Monday 11th – SU Election Nominations Day 

From 10am – 4pm in The Hive the SU will be talking elections and if you think you want to have a go at making some important union decisions then this is your time to shine.

+ Hypnodog

Then in the evening book your tickets early for a chance to be under Hypnodog’s enchanting spell. As seen on Britain’s Got Talent Krystyna Lennon and her dog will be gracing the LCR stage for a night of comedy hypnosis. Not one to miss.

Tuesday 12th – Give It A Go Day

As with last semester you’ll get the opportunity to give any sport society you’d like a go for free and try to find something new you’d like to do as part of your new years resolutions.

+ Damn Good Pyjama Shindig

As usual Tuesday night is a Damn Good night during Refresh16 and the theme this week is a pyjama party.

Wednesday 13th – SportsMart Take 2

Another chance to sign up to any sports societies you might have missed the first time around or those you really enjoyed in the Give It A Go sessions.

+ Blue Bar Sports Social

Just like every Wednesday night the Blue Bar turns into social central for all the sports societies to gather, drink and be merry.

Thursday 14th – Societies Fayre Reboot

Round two of the societies fayre will give you the chance to sign up to and take part in even more activities across campus.


This one night only event promises to be a flashback to the good old days of school disco’s where everyone joined in with the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ and ran around hyped up on fizzy drinks.

Friday 15th – Housing Day

Get ready for the mad Homerun rush. If you don’t know what this is and you haven’t sorted your house for next year out yet then brace yourself for the housing list release on Friday morning. Once they’re out there they wont be there for long. Clear your schedule cause it’s a whole day of house hunting on the cards.

+ Propaganda

You’ll need a breather after securing your house for the next academic year but don’t tire yourself out too much cause Propaganda Friday’s are back this refresher’s week so get yourself down to the Waterfront for the biggest indie night ever.

Saturday 16th – Meltdown

Rounding off the week we’re back at The Waterfront for their self-proclaimed No. 1 Alternative Club Night in Norwich. Tickets are FREE to UEA students before midnight.
