Putting on an event or participating in Clubs and Societies Day is an excellent way to generate interest in your Club or Society. It’s important to be creative and stay true to the theme of your own Club or Society, as that’s what sets it apart. Moreover, ensure that you follow all the necessary steps to make your event memorable, enjoyable, and safe for everyone involved.
If you’re organizing an event, the first step is to submit an Event Application Form together with a Risk Assessment. By doing so, we will:
