The Leeds Singaporean Society organizes a mix of social events to help members, particularly freshers, get to know the rest of the Singaporean community better! There are formal events where girls and guys alike will have an opportunity to dress up, such as the annual Christmas dinner and Spring Ball.
For those who prefer a more casual environment, our Freshers’ Welcome Party and Halloween Party allow members to socialize in a more relaxed setting. These events may be co-organized with our partner societies in the Quintuplets, which means that you will also be able to make friends with members from other societies!
There will also be sporting events held, such as the Warwick Summer Games and Nottingham Winter Games – no prizes for guessing when these events are held! By participating in these tournaments, members will be able to win medals for their University and have the opportunity to get to know Singaporeans from the other UK universities.
Trips to cities and towns outside of Leeds have also been organised by the society. Two years ago, members travelled to London to attend Singapore Day 2014, held in Victoria Park. We were blessed with sunny weather and picnicked on local food cooked by hawkers specially flown in from Singapore, with performances by local artistes such as Chua En Lai and Michelle Chong! Many members also took the opportunity to explore London, as Singapore Day coincided with the start of the Easter Holidays.
