    Just wondering what people thought of the nights in the union, what tends to be the best nights there and what sort of music they tend to play?

    Thanks

    Not to forget Wednesday which is a big night with Score mainly for those in a sports club but that does seem to be a lot of people. Music wise expect lots of cheese. Sometimes features random live music wonders such as Jason Donovan (actually quite good) B*Witched and The Vengaboys.

    Hey Adam. Best live act we had last year was easy The Futureheads, and it was good, probably almost as good as seeing them in a "proper" venue.

    The only night most people bother with in the union is Top Banana on Mondays, due to the cheap drinks, cheap entry and the mainstream appeal. I literally lived for Top B in first term. I prefer Birmingham clubs now.

    Score, on a Wednesday, is popular amoung sporty types. You go with your society cirlcle of members, get lashed, and sing along to various anthems. I find it fairly vulgar and unappealing, and so I'm much looking forward to an alternative night next year in Leamington, the Dog and Pony Show, in Moo Bar. Playing electro, indie, electronic, stuff to have a good little rave to. Cheaper drinks than Score, too.
