Why hello there, Furness. Welcome to week fifteen. We’re going to keep very calm and not think about how fast this term is going…oh Jesus. Anyway, we’ve got a lot for you to look forward to this week. Seriously, it’s a lot.
This Saturday, your fave bar crawl is back, and better than ever! This time, the theme for the 15 Hour Bar Crawl is…Monopoly! That’s right, we’re going to be making our way round Lancaster like it’s a Monopoly board, with drink deals, interactive extras and the cheapest tickets to date! Tickets will be sold on Thursday in the TV room from 1pm – 6pm. They’ll be £6 (!!!) and that includes drink deals, your 15 t-shirt and entry fees. Keep an eye on the event page for all updates, including info on drink deals. We can’t wait!!
This Wednesday, we’re bringing back every Furnessian’s fave karaoke session – Trevaoke! Bring your friends to Trev and sing your heart out to some beloved tunes! 7:30pm in the JCR room.
Self Love & Self Care Night!
Don’t get lost in the fog of Valentine’s Day – it’s important to love yourself, too! Take care of yourself and pop down to the TV room on Tuesday night at 6pm for face masks, fruit and more! You deserve it!
