Join us at the SU Bar for a night of fun friending, music, and games! 

How it'll work:

  • Doors open 18:00, event starts at 19:00
  • You'll get a free drinks voucher on the door for you to redeem on anything you like! We've also got an awesome range of non-alcoholic drinks from juices, soft drinks, as well as non-alcoholic spirits, beers, and ciders!
  • Downstairs we'll have our Speed Friending Mingle set up and from 19:00 - think typical speed dating where on group rotates to different people every 3-5 minutes! We'll have plenty of conversation topics and you don't have to stay the whole time
  • Upstairs there will be space for groups, games, and chat if you don't want to join the mingle.
  • We'll have tunes playing till 21:00


Important Info

You must purchase a free ticket via the link below (on sale from 27 Sept) to attend.

We want our student community and staff to feel supported, confident and safe when running and attending events. We also want to be able to deliver a full programme of events and services throughout the academic year to enhance the student experience. This is why, in line with university policy, we are retaining some Covid-19 measures and will be asking attendees to either:

  • Show evidence of a negative lateral flow test taken within 24 hours prior to the event and register the results here. Lateral flow tests are available for free online, at UWE info points, at The Students’ Union and in most pharmacies


  • Show an NHS Covid Pass, that you can obtain if you have received a full course of vaccination (usually a double dose) OR if you have proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for Covid-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test. More information on how to get your NHS Covid Pass

This will apply to large-scale events (over 300 people), however, those attending smaller events will be subject to spot checks, so please be prepared.

We encourage you also to test again following the event.

If you need to cancel your ticket please email suhallslife@uwe.ac.uk .
