10 things to do this week

Who cares about deadlines and dissertations? We don’t. We’ve got better things to be doing

1.  UoN Fashion Society and Her Campus Nottingham‘s Fashion Party @ Alea Casino 

Monday at 7.30pm, tickets £6

Featuring Fashion society’s annual fashion show, the night is in aid of Coppafeel, so expect dancing boobs and the breast kind of chat.


A fancy event

2. Customs by Logan Wamsley at New Theatre

Monday and Tuesday, 7pm, tickets £3

When you die, instead of heading to heaven, this play sees people heading to the airport. Judgement day is waiting in the customs queue. Sure to be one that leaves you with plenty questions about life.

3. Bandsoc Battle of the Band’s Final @ Spanky Van Dykes

Sunday at 7pm, tickets £3 in advance

Five bands are competing for the coveted Battle of the Bands trophy and some recording time. Apparently the heats were pretty fierce so the final is bound to be even more tense!


4. Equus at New Theatre

Wednesday – Saturday, 7.30pm, tickets from £4

This was the play that Daniel Radcliffe got naked in in The West End. Expectations are therefore high for the play that depicts the decay of modern man.

6. Robin Hood Rugby 7’s @ Highfields Sports Ground

Wednesday, 2pm-6pm

In participation with Crisis, 12 hall teams will battle it out in the sun (fingers crossed) and there will be a  ‘festival atmosphere’ (plenty of beer).

7. The Dishwashers at Theatre Royal

Monday- Saturday, times vary, tickets from £14, discount for students available.

Starring David Essex (your mum probably loves him), this play is all about finding the existential meaning in washing dishes for a living. Probably a good one for all of you still struggling to find a grad job.
