Our Main Events:
The Welcome Social
Taking place on campus, the welcome social is a great opportunity to meet other members of the society as well as your committee. The last few years we have had a bar crawl through Norwich enabling freshers can get to know the area, before heading back to either the LCR or into town for the official Fresher's events. We are usually able to negotiate some amazing drinks deals too. This year we're doing it again, so keep an eye out n our social media!
It's always a successful night, we have had themes ranging from safari to 50 shades of green! Last year we hosted our Around the World bar crawl, where we dressed as tacky tourists and guided freshers around the bars and pubs of Norwich with their very own passports full of challenges to complete on the way. It was a hugely successful night to kick start the year!
The Winter Ball
One of our main annual events is our winter ball, a formal evening in the city to celebrate the end of the first semester.
We have previously held this event at Mr Postles Apothecary and Cuba Revolucion with food and drinks deals, with a photographer capturing the event. This SELLS OUT and is a great way to finish the first semester.
End of Year BBQ
During third semester we head down to the lakeside and have a BBQ to celebrate our achievements over the year and to de-stress after exams! It is also a great way to get to know the new committee for the next academic year.
Staff, postgraduates and families all usually attend the event and it's a lovely way to say goodbye to UEA for a few months as the academic year comes to an end.
The Summer Ball
The Summer Ball is one of the highlights of the year. Previously being held at Carrow Road Stadium, The Assembly House and Rooftop Gardens, this is THE event of the year. We have previously included photographers, performances by the UEA Jazz collective and photobooths with props!
Being able to dress up and celebrate the years achievements and successes always leads to a successful night. As always, photos from previous years can be found on the Facebook.
We also run a number of sober socials throughout the year for those who don't drink and everyone who wants to do something different! In the past we have organised trips to the trampoline park, meals, and more recently we have run documentary screenings which have been a huge success.
ENV Soc Sweatshirts
We have personalised merchandise available to purchase throughout the year. These have the logo embroided on the front and the option to personalise with your name/nickname/course on the back! These get released every few months, so keep checking our SU page for details and availability!
After successfully screen the entire series of Blue Planet II at the end of 2017 and Dynasties in Autumn 2018, these documentary screenings have become very popular. They're a great way to relax, and are hosted either in a bookable room with bean bags or in a lecture theatre. We are planning to join up with the Documentary Society this year, if you have any particular requests please let us know!
Every year we take part in the University wide Ziggurat Challenge. We aim to improve our turn out and results every year, but it is a brilliant way to meet other people in the faculty and try a new sport in an informal way! Head over to ueasport or check the Facebook page for updates on which challenge is happening next.
