Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

Well we’re certainly tuckered out from the Christmas Flirt! and BOUNCE parties at Rocket, as well as the relentless onslaught of fine food, copious amounts of drink and festive fun.

Hope you are too!

So it’s back to business now, and during January we will be planning all the wonderful events for you guys when teaching  starts after exams.

From 7th January we are open for students, but on a reduced hours schedule of 12 – 6pm Monday to Friday.

This is mainly because you will be studying hard to get all your coursework and exams done!!! 🙂

We re-open properly on Friday 1st February when we will be hosting a welcome party for all our new students! More details to follow soon.

After this we will be hosting a full events program during term – movie nights, club nights, gigs and comedy to name but a few.

For all the most up to date info make sure to subscribe to us on facebook and twitter.

Good luck with your exams and coursework over the next few weeks and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

😛 xx
