Freshers Week 2013 - Evening Events

Click here for the daytime events page

Here’s your schedule for evening events organised by your Freshers’ Committee and SCR during your first two weeks at Clifton Hill House and Queen’s Road! As you can see the event times vary but remember that the Three Horses Club bar and JCR will be open from 19:00 every day, so make sure you get down there before the events start to meet up with your friends and get yourselves ready for the big nights ahead!

Please note that all events start in the JCR and are FREE!
(Except entry to the two club nights, but more information will be enclosed below)


Some of you may have seen that there is a Clifton (Halls) Wristband available for purchase - this is not a Clifton Hill House wristband, it is for Manor and Goldney Hall students. Whilst Clifton Hill House and Queens Road students may purchase these wristbands, they are not intended for the Clifton Hill House and Queens Road Freshers' Programme of events and you will not require any form of wristband for any of the events we are putting on. We hope this clears up any confusion!
