Welcome to the Durham Union Society
Welcome back to Easter term!
Here at the Durham Union Society we've been working hard to put together an interesting, engaging and fun term. Our debates cover a wide variety of topical issues, with influential, charismatic speakers on both sides of the House.
We have also worked to ensure numerous high quality addresses with a range of speakers, including Rick Edwards, Gemma Collis and the Speaker of the House of Lords.
Regarding Socials taking place this term, we have several themes and styles; from the Puppy Petting exam stress buster to the much anticipated Summer Garden Party, celebrating 50 years of the Society's bar, 24 North Bailey Club.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Easter term, and my hope that you are looking forward to it as much as I am! Have a fantastic term, and I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks. Enjoy!
President, Easter 2015
