See the facebook group for details of current events.
We have weekly anime screenings during the semester on Tuesdays at 6pm in Appleton Tower LT3, often followed by the pub. We also have showings during the examination period in a different time and location, so check the facebook group / blog / mailing list.
Our first point of contact during the year is during Freshers week; committee members are usually present at the AASoc table during the Freshers Society Fair, while we have an event evening, usually showing a few choice episodes, movies or OAVs.
Friday nights are AASoc’s pub nights. Members old and new get together and colonize the Alehouse, much as we do after series nights, for drink and good, quality discussion.
We also have varying anime events scattered throughout the year. Whether they’re themed (like our Bad Anime Night, Hallowe’en, or Favourites night), fundraisers (such as the recent Choose-Your-Own-Show Charity Night for the benefit of the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami victims) or simply so we can finish series before the end of the semester, we aim to provide a good time for all.
A couple of times a year, AASoc take advantage of the wonderful Bonsai Bar and Bistro to get together for good conversation, a great atmosphere and delicious food.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)
The AGM is our annual event, taking place near the end of semester 2, where we vote on new committee members and any motions to improve the club. Anything and everything can be brought up: this year brought the formation of a new committee post in the for of the MiniCon Co-ordinator.
Other than that, it runs fairly similarly to a regular series night. All the more motivation to attend!
SUMMER SERIES NIGHT
A variation on our weekly event. Smaller number of anime shown, so we can get through them in a fairly short run.
Our annual highlight! We take over Pleasance for a day, complete with games room, art competitions, cosplay competition, ‘Ready, Steady, Cosplay!’, our fantastic quiz, and, of course, anime showings!
