End of Year Summer Party at The Rocket – Friday 29th May at 8pm!

Summer Party

The Summer Party is the end of exams and the start of the Summer for London Met students!!

So it’s that time of year again.
You’ve got 3 deadlines all for the same day, a presentation the day after and then all your spare time revising for all 1258962 of your exams, apart from when you’re procrastinating reading barely interesting articles such as this. WHEN WILL IT END? 

Well, it will end soon. Trust us. And what better way to celebrate when it does by having a party at your favourite student bar. We’re talking about The Rocket Complex of course. The big end of summer party 2015 is coming to you on Friday 29th May, and it’s going to be the best yet.

Doors open at 8, and you’ll be welcome to a decades themed party with 4 rooms of music, each styled in a different decade!

90s Glow Rave main room – There will be more glow sticks than you can fit on both wrists, and glow paint for those that want it. We’ll be playing all of your favourite chart, dance and house music, plus a few golden oldies for good measure.

80s Disco Cocktail Back Room Bar – Have a boogie in the Disco Cocktail bar where we’ll be serving delicious cocktails and pitchers all night, and have classic disco tracks playing under the massive mirror ball.
70s BBQ party in the Courtyard – Chill out in 70s courtyard where we’ll be serving delicious BBQ food (which is free with your ticket). We’ll also be playing a mixture of 70s tracks, and have a free photo booth for everyone to use.

60s Retro Rock and Roll side room – The side room will be turned into a rock and roll dream, with a free jukebox to play all your favourite songs, as well as a chocolate fountain and ice luge.

Fancy dress is STRONGLY encouraged, and you can come as whichever decade yo like best. Party like a 90s raver in your fave tie dye t shirt, or bring out the Disco Diva in you with a big afro and platforms. The possibilities are endless. Or just dress fresh for the partay…
Tickets include an AWESOME 2 free drinks AND free BBQ in the courtyard. This is GOOD NEWS.
There will also be:

– Vintage photo booth with free printouts
– 80s Disco Cocktail bar
– Retro Jukebox
– DJs and live acts all night
