Welcome to LangSoc’s first social of the year – our pub crawl with a twist!
To kick the year off we will be showing our wug-tastic style across Edinburgh in a pub crawl! Starting in Clerks bar we will make our way to 7 pubs in a 1 mile radius. Everyone will get the opportunity to wear a wug hat, badge or even BECOME a wug! Even if you arent a big drinker come along for some great chats and friendly people!
Come and meet our wugs!
Tell us you’re coming on Facebook!
Thursday 20 November – 20:30 to 22:30 – Dining Room, Teviot
Contestant Number 1, come on down!
Join us for our last social of the year. Put your knowledge to the test, because we all know there’s only one way to separate the best from the rest; the venerable pub quiz. This time we’re putting a game show spin on things, so fingers on buzzers and no conferring! The questions will be tough and only one team can leave victorious! Do you (and several friends) have what it takes?
RSVP on Facebook

Fancy dress theme: Colourless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously
Chomsky turns 83 on 7 December so LangSoc and PhilSoc (Philosophy Society) are celebrating it tonight (before exams start!)!
Malone’s has been booked especially for us! It should be a good laugh and something to look forward to while you’re studying this week for deadlines and exams and things.
There is a fancy-dress theme…
Come as a ‘colourless green idea sleeping furiously’
So get creative!
There might even be a prize.
