Our next MCR General Meeting (and last one this year) on this Sunday at 4pm in the Mowlam Room will have a festive theme to it. In particular, there will be a motion for organising an MCR Secret Santa.
For those of you who don’t know, a ‘Secret Santa’ is when a group of people are randomly assigned to a person to whom they anonymously give a gift. This is usually done by putting people’s names in a hat and each person drawing a different person’s name out. Participation is voluntary and it’s a good way for people to give and receive a gift at a low cost (£5 limit).
There is no obligation to take part if you come to the meeting, but if you would like to do Secret Santa, please come along on Sunday! (If you can’t make it but would like to take part let someone else who is going know and we’ll put you in the name draw).
See you on Sunday!

‘The Revenger’s Tragedy’ follows Vindice as he seeks to avenge his wife’s murder at the hands of the powerful, corrupt and lecherous Duke. Employing all his wit, cunning and skill at disguises, Vindice sets out to gain the trust of the court and infiltrate it to exact his bloody revenge on a cast of luridly villainous characters.
Full of satire and black comedy, this play truly is as relatable to audiences now as it was in the 17th century, playing upon political and social ills still relevant today. Being performed for the first time in Durham, this fast-paced Jacobean drama is sure to entertain, shock and intrigue.
