Jax Jones and Raye Surprise Students with The Best Lecture You’ve Ever Heard
Wow, what an incredible Tuesday morning! Those of you who set your alarms, got out of bed early and made it on time for our 09:00 guest lecture today were instead surprised with a secret gig from Jax Jones and Raye in The Cube.
We advertised this event as ‘The Best Lecture You Ever Heard’, with a lecture from “Professor J. Jones” focusing on “The Early Bird Theory” – the theory that those who get up earlier are rewarded for their efforts.
The Cube was transformed into a huge early-morning party with confetti, t-shirt cannons, carnival dancers and fantastic music. Jax and Raye performed their hit collaboration, You Don’t Know Me and Instruction, along with many other crowd-pleasing tunes. Students were encouraged to dance with Jax on stage and party the morning away as a reward for making it to the lecture on time.
We hosted this event in collaboration with Coca-Cola and Create Productions, with students receiving a free Coke Zero after the event and having the opportunity to enter a competition to see Jax Jones live once more in concert.
Our VP Engagement, Dan Varley, came along to the set and said: “What an amazing way to start a Tuesday. The set from Jax and Raye was fantastic and it was great to see so many students enjoying themselves. It just goes to show it’s always worth turning up to a 09:00 lecture, you never know what’s in store!”
