It’s time to party like it’s 1966!

Pop by the Parade on Tuesday 25 October and celebrate our birthday your way with our pick and mix party.

Whether you‘re barmy about barbecues and bungee, silly about salsa and smoothies or mad about Motown and mocktails, there’ll be something for you.

We have Art Walls going up in the foyer of Claverton Rooms and in the Students’ Union. We would really like you to leave us a Happy Birthday message!

Whatever your schedule, however you want to celebrate, take some time out of your day and make POP go with a bang.
