The start of the new academic year is fast approaching and that hallowed University tradition of Freshers Week starts this coming Monday. As such I have decided to keep readers up to date about our upcoming events:
Freshers Fair – Friday 26th September, 10am – 4pm
Throughout next week members of BUCF and the BUCF committee will be around campus in order to encourage new members to sign up. The committee will make sure there are plenty of posters, flyers etc to keep everyone informed as to our movements. The focal point of the entire week will be our Freshers Fair which will be held on Friday 26th September in the large marquee behind the Guild of Students. This is where all new and returning members can come to sign up for another year with us for just £5.
Conference Drinks – TBC
As most of you will be aware the Conservative Party are hosting their annual Conference in Birmingham at the ICC which falls on the first week of term. Myself, Laura, Dom and others have acquired our passes for conference however we will also be trying to ensure that as many members of BUCF are able to participate in what promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable event for the party and for Birmingham. We are in the process of inviting members of the Shadow Cabinet to a special BUCF Conference Drinks Evening which will be held at a bar in central Birmingham. Full details of the event and which Shadow Cabinet Members will be attending will be posted to members after the Freshers Fair for security purposes.
BUCF Drinks – Sunday 5th October, 7pm – late
The Committee has reserved the private function room of the Bristol Pear for our first event to officially welcome all new and returning members. This event will naturally be exclusive to BUCF members with the first few drinks being covered by the society with the generous support our local Conservative associations. Formalities and politics will be kept to a strict minimum… this event is to try and get everyone re-acquainted and show that a political society can be about more than just politics!
