Michaelmas 2020 Programme

Due to the current lockdown in England no further in-person events will be happening this term.

Here you can see the programme for the 2020 Michaelmas term. We have a mixture of virtual and outdoors events planned, fully risk-assessed and socially distant so everyone can stay safe. If you have any questions, you can email the social secretary. As always, if you have any activities you would like to see us run, let us know!

Virtual events: Keep an eye on the weekly emails to find out how to join. Subscribe to the weekly emails here.

Access statements for upcoming events can be found here.

Freshers’ Hike (in person, outdoors), 10am Saturday 17th October

Meet at Christ’s Pieces behind the bus station. This is a great chance to get out of Cambridge and explore the surrounding area. Who knows, it might even be nice weather. Allow a few hours & bring lunch.

Origami yourself a COVID test, knit yourself some flour or just create art out of post-its in your window. Actual crafts TBD.

Punting (provisional), Friday 30th October

Learn one of the classic Cambridge skills – the most famous of which is having existential crises over cups of tea, but only slightly less well known is piloting a boat by jabbing a stick into the murky depths of the Cam.

Stargazing (in person, outdoors), Tuesday 3rd November

Does anyone read this far on the page? Maybe I can divine that from the stars.

Jackbox games (online), Saturday 7th November

Grab your phone and get online for some party game action. We have access to Drawful and the party pack two.

Among Us (online), Wednesday 11th November

For those of you who have thus far managed to avoid the deluge of memes about it, Among Us is a “multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal” available free on the Android and Apple app stores. If you want to be in the running to win this year’s wooden spoon for stirring attendance is strongly recommended.

SSAGO Build-A-Rally (format TBC), Friday 13th – Sunday 15th November

Experience a rally like no other – unlike the normal camp format this will be done remotely, with a range of different activities including remote ones and ones which can be done in-person with your club.
