On Tuesday the 22nd of March some of the committee members of LASSoc put on our best dresses and prepared ourselves for The Guild Awards 2016. Every year our student’s union recognise the hard work put in by societies with The Guild Awards where the best societies can win prizes. The event is held in the Great Hall of the Aston Webb building and I thought I would bring you guys along.
The evening started with a drinks reception in the foyer of Aston Webb where we got the chance to mingle with other societies and show off our dresses.
We were then allowed into the Great Hall which had been beautifully decorated for the occasion.
We took our seats (and a few photos) before enjoying the entertainment.
Firstly there was some fantastic dancing and then this was followed by a wonderful dinner.
After dinner the awards began, interspersed with some great student performances, which really showcased the student talent – it ranged from burlesque to ballroom, all perfectly executed of course!
My favourite performance of the night was from Uptone Girls an all girl A cappella group who just blew me away, I urge everyone to go and see them as they will not disappoint!
Once all the awards had been announced everyone headed over to the student union and attempted to dance in heels.
Thank you to the Guild of Students for a fabulous evening and my favourite committee for sharing it with me.
