Arty Party

Want to meet all the right people?!

Need to reconnect with old friends and fellow creatives?

Looking to get involved and find out what’s happening this year?

Then come along to the Arty Party – a brilliant chance to meet the UMSU Arts teams from UMSU Creative Arts Department and Union House Theatre and find out about what our amazing arts scene offers. Whether you’re a writer, performer, visual artist, dancer, theatre-maker, comedian or acrobat – this is the party for you! There’ll be food, cheap drinks and plenty of people to chat with. Come along, mingle, have a bev, have a boogie and get involved.

FREE EVENT – Just rock up!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

This theme is a provocation. It’s whatever EXTRA means to you. Maybe if you’re a musical theatre kid it means coming as the phantom of the opera, or maybe it’s a chance for you to wear that particularly fabulous sparkly jacket you’ve been saving up, or maybe you come as Ricky Gervais’ character from the seminal tv show Extras.

Make of it what you will. Get creative.

We look forward to seeing you there.
