Cultural Ball ’16 | Rooted In Gold (TICKETS!)

Hey guys!

Hope your exams are going/have gone well and everyone is excited about the 6th of June…

It’s that’s time of the year again! Our finale event is here and this year we’ve themed it Rooted In Gold which is all about celebrating the riches of our African and Caribbean heritage! We’ve had an amazing year and would love to end it with a bang so we’ve put in a lot of effort and arranged a lot for you at this year’s Cultural Ball. The night will consist of a red carpet entrance, live performances, photo booth, African and Caribbean cuisine and lots more! See the posters below for more information.

Meet Your Buddy

Every year we link up freshers with higher year students who act as their support system and go-to person throughout the academic year. Whether you need help with your course or just want to know where to buy plantain, you’ll have a buddy to assist you the best they can.

Honey, our welfare officer deals with the buddy system so if you have any questions please get in touch with her on Twitter or on 07931888603. There will be a ‘How well do you know your buddy’ event next semester to test you and your buddy and see who’s bonded the most so get involved (only members can participate)!

‘Girl’s Night In’ Social

Our girl’s social was a really chilled night in filled with get-to-know-each-other games as well as some heated and controversial topics which really brought you girls out of your shells! It was nice to see so many of you come through the door and we really appreciate each and every one of you for coming down and socialising with us some more.

Notts ACS Sports Tour | Croatia 2016


Hi everyone!

Every year Notts ACS plan a sports trip with I Love Tour to play sports, ofcourse, as we run netball, football and basketball throughout the year. Last year we were in Salou, Spain and had the most amazing time! Not only did we get to play against other universities and meet new people, but we also got the chance to soak up some sun and relax during the Easter holiday. This year we’ve decided on Croatia which should hopefully top last year’s experience! Whether you’re into sports or not you can still come along and support your favourite society!

To give you a little insight into what we got up to last year, here’s our recap video from Salou:

Now for the serious information… The absolute total cost of the trip is £294.95 (including booking fee, initial deposit and refundable damage deposit) and this covers everything including accommodation, ILOVETOUR t-shirt, buffet breakfast, exclusive entry to clubs & bars, return coach from university and much more. There’s a lot in store for you guys so it’s worth every penny.


TRIP DATES: 28/03/16 – 03/04/16

£75 DEPOSIT DUE: 07/12/15

£219.95 REMAINING PAYMENT DUE: 22/01/16

If you want any more information get in touch with one of our publicity officers, Abigail – 07701326943 or our creative director, Lola – 07577919608. Bring your whole squa or come ready to meet new people and create some memories together.
