Socials

General Information

The Wayfarers are a super social society with a wide range of events to take part in. We love meeting new members so come along and join us!

Every other Thursday we also have a committee meeting followed by a trip to the pub which everyone is welcome to attend. We send out details about these trips every week through our mailing list -- so don't forget to sign up!

Our social secretary, Susie Elks, is open to ideas on what events we should run, so if there’s anything you want to see happen just give her a shout.

You can see our upcoming socials further down this page...

Photo Competition

Every year we run a photo competition at our AGM. The competition has a number of categories such as:

  • Best landscape
  • Best group photo
  • Best wildlife shot
  • Most humorous
  • Best water feature

Past prizes have included walking boots bags, flasks, torches and free Wayfarers trips.

The nominated photos are from the shots taken on the last year so if you want to take part start snapping now!

For our second social of the term we will be heading to Birmingham Bouldering Centre! Bouldering is an easy and exciting way to try rock climbing. This social is great for everyone whether you've never been climbing before or you're an experienced climber.

We'll be meeting at University Station before heading over to the center, and afterwards we'll head to a pub in the city (probably Spoons!).

This is going to be a classic Board Games Evening mixed with excellent food (hopefully) from all over the world and the UK! We’ll have loads of different games being played throughout the house and throughout the evening so come along and get stuck in.

But -- because we don’t like keeping things simple -- we’re mixing this with a society-wide Food Fuddle. We’re asking everyone to bring a food representative of where they’re from!

The Glee Club is a great venue in the centre of Birmingham. We’ll be going to watch the award winning Comedy Carousel which for students is only £5!

We’ll meet at University Station, head in to the centre all together and have an awesome evening of comedy together.

Every year we head to the Birmingham German Market and Ice Skating rink! It’s a festive bonanza ending in the annual Wayfarers Christmas Meal.

Unfortunately, we have a limited number of spaces for the meal (we wish we could have all our 200 members in a restaurant), so keep a look-out for information in the Wayfarers Weekly about where we’ll be going and how to reserve yourself a space. We do, however, have unlimited spaces for the market and ice skating!
