Regular Favourites

Afternoon Tea

On the first Tuesday of every month, you can live like a royal and enjoy Afternoon Tea for Two between 3-5pm in The Bridge. Expect finger sandwiches, a selection of cakes and of course, a pot of tea to ease yourself into the afternoon.


Every Thursday in The Stag’s is all about embarrassing yourself in front of large groups of your fellow students. Just kidding…sort of! Grabbing the mike for karaoke and doing your best Whitney or Britney has become something of a University rite of passage. TIP: A selection of beers in The Stag’s helps to loosen the vocal cords.


£1.99 beers in The Stag’s is bound to give everyone that Friday feeling, every week from 4pm.

Laughter Lounge

Watch top professional comedians perform live stand-up in The Bridge for the bargain price of £4 every other Thursday! Make your night even better with The Big Red Membership for £4, which gives you 3 years’ membership and different discount deals at every show. We have two shows coming up on 25th April and 12th May. Tickets will be available soon from the Box Office.

Steak Club and Signature Cocktails

The two magic words to make your Friday’s start with a bang! Head over to The Bridge and choose from a selection of the finest steaks accompanied with a cocktail. Why not pop over for a bite to eat and then head back to TFIF at The Stag’s

Switched On at Switch

We’ve partnered with Switch Southampton to bring you the best club nights every Tuesday. From celebrity appearances to DJ sets to make you want to hit the dancefloor, choose Tuesdays as your housemate night out! Tickets will be available soon from the Box Office.

Quiz and Curry

Choose from a selection of the finest curries at The Bridge every Sunday and be in with a chance of winning all of the quiz prize money! It’s a no-brainer!

WSA Quiz

If you’re based in WSA, you don’t have to miss out. Let’s get quizzical every other Tuesday in the WSA Cafe and even if you’re losing, you’re winning because you get to choose the wooden spoon round for the next Quiz! We also welcome suggestions from students about what food you would like to have – so far we have had curry, chilli and the next event is hotdogs!
