Summer Socials with Student Opps

City Socials might have finished for the summer, but there are still so many great things going on over the next few months that we just couldn’t bear to leave it another 3 months without meeting up. So if you’re a PGR student, a PGT student, on a March-start course or just sticking around in Liverpool over the summer, come along!

As usual, we’ll be meeting up before the events in the LSU John Foster Social Zone and walking down/up to wherever the event is. Unfortunately as these events are not part of the City Socials project, some of the events will have a very small cost attached so just remember to bring money along if you need to 🙂 To sign up for any of the events, please email or message us on social media at least by midday on the day of the event. There might hopefully be some room for people to just turn up, but it you book on beforehand it just means you are guaranteed a place!

So in chronological order, here they are:

Event: Film – The Shape of Water
Date: Tue 3rd July
Location: Liverpool Philharmonic
Price: FREE
I know we go on about it all the time, but seeing a film at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall really is an amazing experience; from the Walturdaw screen to the resident organist, to the Art Deco building to the fact it’s FREE… how can you resist?! On the 3rd July we’ll be going to watch this year’s big Oscar-winner ‘The Shape of Water’ in this beautiful setting. If you haven’t already heard much about the film, the basic plot follows a mute caretaker who falls in love with a sea creature…. so it should be interesting!

Cinema screen

Event: Mam! I’m ‘Ere
Date: Tue 17th July
Location: Royal Court Theatre
Price: FREE
From the tranquil shores of Greece to… err a caravan site in Wales… this is a tale you already know but with a brilliant Scouse twist (and absolutely no Abba songs in sight). This Royal Court classic is packed full of all our favourite cast members, and is set to have you boogieing out of the theatre with sore sides from all the laughter. Please note there are other free tickets for the performance of Mam! I’m ‘Ere on the Monday 16th July, but we will be taking a small group to see the show with a FREE meal beforehand! Tickets are very limited so book in asap if your want to come along.


Event: Twilight Thursdays
Date: Thursday 26th July
Location: Liverpool Cathedral
Price: FREE
We’re very sad that the free cathedral offer is coming to an end (for those of you who haven’t claimed your free tickets yet, you have until 31st July to use your pass!), so we have decided to make the most of the last chance LJMU students can access the fabulous Twilight Thursday tour of the tower. So if you want to come along to catch the incredible sun setting over the city, get in touch! We promise the view will not disappoint.

Cathedral at Night

Event: Terracotta Warriors Exhibition CANCELLED
Date: N/A
Location: World Museum
Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event due to operational difficulties. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you would still like to see the incredible Terracotta Warriors on your exclusive LJMU £2 offer, please click here for further info.


Event: Op Art in Focus
Date: Tue 28th August
Location: Tate Liverpool
Price: FREE
As we say farewell to a number of amazing exhibitions which have graced Tate Liverpool over the first half of this year, we welcome some brilliant new ones next month including Op Art in Focus. This new exhibition will display leading figures of the optical art movement which emerged in the 1960s. According to Tate Liverpool’s website there will be ‘lines, geometric shapes and eye popping colour to create artworks that fool the eye’. We’ll walk down to the Docks to see this new exhibition at this event so keep your fingers crossed for sunny weather!
