In a city known for its music, what better way to embrace the musician lifestyle and immerse yourself in the student scene, than to join Band Soc.

‘As a society our main aims are to get musicians playing together, forming bands and providing our members with both a practise space and opportunities to perform.’

Membership for the society is only £15 a year including access and use of the fully equipped Band Room. 

Summer 2018 saw the annual ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition take centre stage for the final at the Cavern Club. To find out more about ‘Battle of the Bands’, their biggest event of the last academic year, follow the link here. There is also a write-up of the event if you fancy reading some more click here.

The Committee:

President – Jacob Barrow

Treasurer – Oliver White

Social Secretary – Katie Hall

Senior Director – Connor McDerrmott

Band Soc’s annual ‘Battle of the Acoustics’ will be the highlight of the semester, which has been relocated to the autumn term. Upcoming events including meet and greets, open pics, band nights and socials are just some of the fun you can get involved in with Band Soc. Another important part of Band Soc is the work to get musicians in touch with each other on their Facebook group and the Big Match database which they administrate.

Band Soc events are traditionally held every Thursday night at a different venue in town but the new committee are yet to decide on how this will continue so stay posted to find out. Make sure you come down to the Welcome Fair on the 20th and 21st of September to find out what more Band Soc has planned for the next year.
