Quizzing fun

Hello there, Buddies! First of all, for all you new faces, WELCOME TO EDINBURGH – in my eyes, the best place to study in the whole entire world! My name is Hilary, and I’m the Buddies secretary. I’ll be bringing you all the latest news and events in these monthly newsletters. If you want to share a story or photo of your time here, get in touch with me and we’ll put it on the blog for all to see.

January Events

We kicked the semester off with a rather fabulous pub quiz. Frankenstein’s is a great pub to be in at the best of times, and with the added fun and games of quizzing it was safe to say it was a successful evening! If you missed it, don’t worry. Make sure you’re added into the Facebook group to stay on top of event invitations here.

February Events

We’ve got loads of things planned for this semester, beginning with a walk and a Sunday lunch. Taking place this Sunday, February 1, we’ll go for a walk around Leith and Newhaven before heading to a nearby carvery. We’ll meet at 11am on Sunday in Bristo Square, just outside Teviot, and get the bus to Leith together from there. We’ve put on a sign-up deadline of Thursday so we can let the carvery know how many people to expect – you don’t need to buy a ticket or anything like that, just sign up via the link below and bring yourself, and money for the bus and carvery. For more info, here is the event on Facebook. 

Sign up here to let us know you’re coming!

Our next event after that will be to Sheep Heid on Wednesday 11th February. Meeting at 7pm, we will head to the famous pub in Duddingston for bowling (yes that’s right, bowling in the pub) and to soak up the oldey worldey vibes. Event details can be found here . Don’t forget to sign up on the here if you’re coming – just so we know numbers.

Also, our sister international group, Exchange 360, are planning a trip away for the last weekend of Innovative Learning week in February. It’s to Isle of Skye for only £120, and a great opportunity to meet more peeps and see more of bonnie Scotland!
Tickets are being sold on Saturday, here are the event details.

Future Events

Other dates for your diary are another famous pub quiz in week 6 and an exciting trip to Gorgie City Farm in week 8. Look out for more details and invitations!
