Kicking off the week is a comedy night held at Squirrels Bar on Monday at 7pm, headlined by Colin Manford and showcasing some of the finest student stand-up the University has to offer. Tuesday night is your time to get your corset and fishnets on (gender irrespective) for the long-established screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, shown at Fab Cafe on Portland Street from 7pm. Need a date in time for Valentine’s Day? Head down to Joseph Whitworth on Wednesday 13th from 8pm to be matched up with the girl or guy of your dreams in our massively successful Speed Dating. If nobody there takes your fancy, never fear as Take Me Out is taking place on Thursday 14thin Academy 2 – with contestants from the ITV show making an appearance! We’re still looking for contestants, so if you’re interested, email [email protected] Take Me Out 2012 was hugely popular so get your tickets early from the Student Activities office. If you fancy doing something a little different on Friday night, Dare Night is for you – head down to Font, Fallowfield, at 8pm and take part in some ridiculous and hilarious dares across the city.
