CUMSA Garden Party

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….



Rejoice! Darth Tripos has been defeated. The Republic is at peace once more. Jedi Knights from all the planets are gathering in Churchill to celebrate bringing balance back to the force. Even the Girtonian natives are descending upon us from Tatooine…. Wield your lightsabers and don your robes, engage your X-Wings but don’t come Solo – Padawans and Masters unite! Let us all feast as one CUMSTAR family….

We are throwing our annual Garden Party this year at Churchill College, on 17 June 2017, from 3pm to 5.30pm! There will be a variety of Star Wars themed food and drinks (including alcohol), and some games so do come down with your friends to celebrate the end of Tripos! It will also be a great opportunity for you to catch up with seniors in their last year before they graduate.

Lastly, do come dressed in Star Wars themed clothing or colours!!! Participants will receive a doorgift too. Guarantee we will have a blast; we look forward to receiving you
