College Colours @ KU – Wednesday 30th May (Evening)

Doors open at 11pm

Does this need any introduction? If yes is the answer to that question, let me elaborate. This is the final KU and the final college colours with Snow, so it’s gonna be massive!

Sun, Snacks and Supersoakers! – Thursday 31st May (Day)

12pm til 3pm

We will also be giving you some Supersoakers and we are gonna have a legendary waterfight outside of central, feel free to shoot Joe with your Supersoakers all you want and this sounds like it could be one of the most memorable days in ReFreshers! There’s also a BUFFET included. I literally am so excited even writing this and I honestly can’t wait to shoot some water guns after a great night at KU!

Stevo on Tour: Newcastle – Thursday 31st May (Evening)

Get to central from 8pm as coaches leave at 8:30pm

Our final Stevo on Tour from Queens and we are headed to Skint @ Illegitimate to celebrate a sick day of supersoakers! This is set to be mindblowing as it’s our first trip to Newcastle this year.

Durham Orientation day

10am – 1pm in Hilton Cottage

This is gonna be such a great opportunity for those moving to Durham next year (and also those who live there now but don’t know it that well!) to get to know the wonderful city you will soon be calling home.

Craig and Jeff have prepared a great day for us with all the info you need and this will be unmissable if you really want to get the most out of living in the city!

After your Durham orientation, yourselves to Hilton Cottage on Friday of ReFreshers week, and enjoy a free taxi ride – or walk if the weather is nice – to the Go Karting track near Durham.

Handover Dinner – Friday 1st June (Evening)

6:30pm drinks reception

The Handover Dinner is honestly an unmissable event in the Stevo Calendar. Come and watch the outgoing exec handover to the incoming exec, and see lots of speeches from Presidents past, present and future (guess who??). As well as this, so many awards are given out on this night, from Half and Full colours, to Outstanding Services to the JCR and even Honorary Life Membership of the JCR!
