As a diverse community of music enthusiasts, we like to put on events and meet up for regular socials throughout the year. Our previous activities have ranged from gigs we’ve put on to DJing socials, film screenings to music discussion circles, and pub quizzes to casual socials. We’ve also done mixtape exchanges and we like to go to other gigs and nights together too. For a full list of upcoming and previous events, please check our Facebook pageYou don’t have to be a member of the society to come along to our events! (But joining helps support us in putting on events so we’d love it if you did <3)
