During this years’ fresher’s week, I was commissioned to shoot a handful of event at the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Student Union Aka The Union.
7 years ago I attended my own fresher’s week (yes I am getting old), so I was ecstatic to be back and see how everything has changed. Let’s recap on my time during the crazy fresher’s week at The Union.
The week got off to an amazing start with the Famous Zoo Project Party being the first big event. The Music, free face paint and animal decoration created one of the most fun events I have shot. The Zoo Project was the perfect place for everyone’s inner party animal to come out.
On the legendary fresher’s Sunday, DJ Fresh hosted the night. Playing some of his most popular tunes, from Louder, Gravity to Hot Right Now.
Comedy Night with Russell Kane
The Union held its first ever comedy night this year, with the very funny Russell Kane headlining. Although a bit of a tamer event, this was a huge success and I can’t wait to see if it becomes a regular occurrence.
Fresher’s Fair :
Of course, no fresher’s week would be complete without the fresher’s fair. The societies have grown so much over the past couple of years and the freebies were even better.
Re-Group with Shift K3Y & Disciples:
Shift K3Y and Disciples Headlined the Friday night event. Rather than try and describe the atmosphere (as words can do no justice) I will leave you to feel the emotion displayed in these photos.
The last event I attended for The Union was Band Night, with The LaFontaines, The Carnabys and The Hotspur Press playing. This was also a very different event but one I would happily attend again.
Thank you for having me The Union, it has been a pleasure!
