Societies you may not have heard of

AS FRESHER’S week draws closer, and we begin to reflect on the societies and sports clubs we joined last year and actually stuck to, I realised there are many societies that I hadn’t even heard of. This article should elaborate a little more on two of the university’s most obscure societies.

The Cocktail Society

Aber’s cocktail society wants to get students from all years involved in their fun and laid back society. Their aim for the coming year is to encourage participation in cocktail making master classes and tasting sessions as well as attending weekly socials and doing what most students do best: drink.

Underwater Hockey

Underwater hockey is what it says on the tin: hockey under the water. Not so good if you can’t swim but it definitely adds a bit of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the typical game of hockey and makes it a little less serious. Saying that, they did win their Varsity match this year so they must take their competitions seriously. All in all, it is certainly different and looks like a lot of fun.

Medieval Re-enactment Society

Aber’s medieval re-enactment society emphasises its focus into events which took place between the reigns of Henry I and King John. It is a smaller cog in a global society named ‘Historia Normannis’, which aims people to engage with history in a more interactive and lively way.
