Spring Ball: Singapore Sling 2015

To celebrate our country’s 50th birthday, we decided to take a walk down memory lane! The Theme: Vintage Singapore Inspired by images of Old Singapore, from trishaw-wheeling coolies to khaki-clad policemen in shorts wink emoticon We’ve also named our dinner after the iconic cocktail, the Singapore Sling, which was developed by a Hainanese bartender at the Raffles Hotel! In line with our theme, the dinner will be held at The Leeds Club, a historic Grade II Listed building in the heart of the city. Built for the son of William Hey, a distinguished surgeon, this Victorian house was used as a private members’ club for over 150 years. Dinner will include a 3-course menu and 4 bottles of house wine per table! Do check out the menu below for the choices available for each course - note that all mains are served with seasonal vegetables and potatoes. To select your bespoke 3-course dinner menu, do head over to the following link: Ticketing info: Early bird (members-only): £25 Standard members price: £30 Non-members price: £35 Do note that early bird tickets will be available until 2 March 2015, 23:59.

UCLSS Seniors' Lunch 2015

UCLSS Seniors' Lunch 2015

Every year, UCLSS organises a seniors' lunch event whereby graduating Year 3/4 seniors will gather together to have a delightful meal before graduation. This year, UCLSS will be organising a lunch for UCL seniors at the beautiful Royal China (Baker Street) where a set lunch of dim sum and selected Chinese delicacies will be served. This event will mainly tie in with OSU's third funding criteria. Being an event catered for graduating seniors, many of which will return to Singapore to join the workforce, the event will undoubtedly strengthen a sense of community amongst attendees and remind the imminent graduands of their close ties with Singapore, also serving to motivate them just before they embark on their final year examinations in university. By keeping the event open to Year 1 and Year 2 students, we also aim at encouraging junior-senior interaction. Since the set lunch is priced at £20.30, we want to subsidise our seniors for the meal such that they only have to pay £10 for an early bird price and £15 for a normal price. For the rest of UCLSS members, we want to subsidise such that they only have to pay £15.
