FRESHERS’ FORTNIGHT SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
ALL INCLUSIVE TICKET: The Freshers Complete Package gets you into every single RUMS event in freshers’ fortnight. Limited number available!
SUNDAY 22nd Sept – INTRO AND MUMS & DADS
Meet at 5.30 in the UCL QUAD where the RUMS Executive committee will be waiting for you. You will then have a brief intro talk by the Execs before you go off to meet your friendly Medic Parents and have a more informal (and probably more informative) intro to RUMS at Huntley Street
MONDAY 23rd Sept – BOAT PARTY
An annual extravaganza with a free drink thrown in, party in style on the Thames! We will leave from Huntley Street at 7.15 (be there a bit earlier) and take the Tube down. The boat leaves at 8 so don’t be late! Attire: This is a smart event; cocktail dresses for the ladies and summer formal (chinos at the least, full 3 piece suit encouraged) for the gentlemen. A limited number of tickets will be released this afternoon which we expect to sell out quickly after which tickets will only be available via the all-inclusive ticket.

WEDNESDAY 25th Sept – SPORTS DAY
During the afternoon you will be whisked away to have a go with one of the many RUMS Sports Clubs (they will provide the details) followed by your first ever Sportsnite in Huntley Street.
THURSDAY 26th Sept – SCAVENGER HUNT
A chance to get to know some of your year whilst you wonder across London, take in the sites and try and beg, borrow and steal as many things as possible! Timing to be confirmed
FRIDAY 27th Sept – FRIDAY MADNESS I: PIRATE PARTY
PIRATES! Head down to Huntley Street for your first Huntley Party, starting from 7.30. For the bargain price of £3 there will be a large (and we really do mean large) number of free drinks available (non-alcoholic included). Dress theme is strictly pirates!

MONDAY 30th Sept – MUMS & DADS II
A chance to catch up with your folks or maybe grab a few more – either way pizza from the Michelin starred (probably) ICCO’s will be available. Afterwards we shall descend on London’s most infamous Soho nightclub and student favourite – Moonies! Meet at Huntley from 7.30
FRIDAY 4th Oct – FIRDAY MADNESS II: UCLU SURGICAL SOCIETY PRESENTS BLOOD AND GUTS
We’ve teamed up with the Surgical Society to recreate an old RUMS favourite: Blood & Guts! We’ve seen mummies, zombies and corpses here before so go wild – scrubs always provide an excellent (free & destructible) source of costume for this. As with Friday Madness I drinks will be provided! Huntley Street, 7.30

SUNDAY 6th Oct – END OF FRESHERS’ PARTY
In the idyllic surrounding of UCL’s North Cloisters we will set up an evening soiree with food and drinks included! After this we will head to Huntley for the traditional MDs Fresher’s Show! Tickets will be released shortly (very shortly)!
