Halloween Quiz & Curry, Apoco-Lash!

Hello EngSoc!

‘Tis that time of year again… We’ll be hosting a Halloween Quiz Special of the Quiz & Curry in the Students’ Union’s Bridge Bar at 8pm on 28th October – with special rounds like Gothic Fiction, Famous First Lines, and a Film-themed Picture Quiz! We’re still firming up details, so watch for our Facebook event! :-)

 

Then there’s the Halloween social…

The Apocolash is coming…

Remember those Induction lectures had by all in the week before term started? Well… Do you remember the amount of people coughing and spluttering? The one at the back that looked all pale and drawn, and shuffled a little on their way in/out?

That’s right. Zombies have been in Southampton, and infecting people for weeks on end. And it’s time for the show-down. Our scientists have discovered that on Halloween night, the Zombies will be flocking to the Stag’s on Highfield Campus. Freshers: It’s your job to lead them from there to the Palace of Dreams, where the Jesters-grime will cleanse the Zombies of the infection. Try not to become one on the way. Or Portswood will become a haven for God-forsaken, shuffling, and crazed beings… More so.

Details: Freshers: You’re the ‘Survivors’. Your job is to draw the Zombies down to the Palace of Dreams on 31st October and not get bitten yourself! Zombies: Well, you’re zombies. Shuffle about, make sure to nibble a few cranial delicacies beforehand for that fresh-blood-dripping-from-the-maw look. And let’s pray the Jesters-grime is potent enough to cure the infection!

 

 

Watch for further details. It’s going to be epic!
