The Medway Campus Summer Party will return to Coopers this year with a promise that it will be “bigger and better”, The Medwire can exclusively reveal.
Last year’s event was held at Coopers and featured live music, food and plenty of sunshine.
It was also widely heralded asa success by students from all three universities on the Medway Campus.
Looking to succeed on last year’s event, Coopers manager Gareth Gay, music student and Kent Union Vice President (Activities) candidate Jack McDonnell and Activities Officer Clarissa Place will be organising the festivities.
Talking about the plans for this year’s party, Clarissa Place said: “We are hoping to make the event bigger and better than the previous year, hopefully with more societies able to take part.
“The event is for students from all the universities on campus to celebrate the end of term and hopefully they’ll come down whatever the weather.”
The summer party is expected to take place on Saturday, May 18 and will include 12 hours of live bands and DJs throughout the day.
The theme is set to be “Exam Buster”to celebrate the end of exams.New additions to the party this year will include a planned marquee allowing for bands to play outside, as well as various showcases and displays from the campus’societies.
The popular Coopers BBQ and cocktail bar will also return, with a range of drinks deals to be revealed closer to the event.
Coopers will also be hoping to provide a range of summer themed refreshments, including ice cream.
A motion to charge students to go to the event has, however been scrapped, The Medwire understands.
A consultation meeting for the Summer Party is scheduled to take place later this month, with more details to be released in the coming weeks.
