Spring Dinner 2014

Spring Dinner tickets go on sale on this Tuesday 4th March in the RSM Foyer at 12.00pm

It is that time of year again when we begin to reminisce over the successes of the RSM as a whole and also all of those people who make it such a fantastic institution year on year!

The Spring Dinner is once again going to be held at the Kensington Marriott Hotel on Friday 14th March. The event will consist of a 3 course meal with half a bottle of wine included in the ticket price. Throughout the meal, we will award the colours and RSMU awards for the year and also announce the results of the RSMU elections (nominations for positions are now open on the Union Website) which will be announced on that evening by the Union.

It promises to be a great night (post dinner venue TBC) after the success of the event last year! All of this is heavily subsidised by the RSMU and tickets will be only £20 for undergraduates, £25 for postgraduates and £30 for staff.

Post Bottle Match Bar Night

Celebrate keeping the bottle where it belongs tonight at the Union from 7pm onwards!

£7 for 4 pints, £8 if you do not turn up in RSM regalia or Bottle Match players’ kit.

Yards and celebratory drinks for Captains will be provided.

Afterwards, free entry and drink deals at our beloved Hammersmith Belushis!

Also, if you haven’t paid for the slave auction from Pre-Bottle Match Bar Night be sure to bring along enough money for either Matt Pike or Steve Watkins.
