Booking Opens at 7pm 14th June:  £2.50 for Livers In and  £3.50 for Livers Out including a Champagne Reception

FINALISTS PHOTO 12TH MAY 2PM

What is it?
As occurred last year you will have a Finalists Photo on Sat 12th May at 2pm...this is a great little break from revision on what hopefully will be a nice afternoon!
How many photos?
Phoenix Photography will take two photos : one that will be a formal photograph with names below (see attached picture in email dated 05/05/12 06:57) and the second a "fun" photo with props or accessories that represent your time at Grey and Durham. I'll leave that to your imagination!
What do I wear?
Casual clothes, "formal" just means standing in lines looking formal compared to the freedom of the "fun" photo with props. Feel free to bring a College sport/society shirt for the "fun" photo.
How much?
The photos will be exactly the same size and price as last year - the photos will cost £12 and they will be approximately 14" x 7" in size mounted onto A3 size thick board mounts printed with the college name and crest above, and the text "Finalists 2012". All the names will be printed below this on the formal photo only.
Do I pay on the day?
Due to the specific board mounts that they have to purpose make you will have to bring the money on the day either cash or cheque payable to "Phoenix Photography" (write your cheque guarantee card number and the expiry date on the back of any cheques) - you will be able to view the photo on the camera itself after if you want. This means they know how many to order in advance even if it is a bit of a hassle for you guys!
Let me know if you have any questions,
Phil

Burns Night Formal, 25th January

Hello Grey!

Menu is as follows...

Starter

Cock-a-leekie Soup, served with a Crusty Bread Roll   

(v) Leek & Potato Soup 

Main Course

Haggis, Neeps & Tatties

(v) Vegetarian Haggis, Neeps & Tatties

Both will be served with a Whiskey & Mustard Cream Sauce

 

Dessert

Cranachan (traditional Burn’s Night pudding of Raspberries, Cream, Oatmeal & Drambuie)

 
 
I know I say it every time, but NOM.
 
Dress code is Black Tie (tuxes), and the Formal starts at 7.15pm, so please be ready to be seated at 7.00pm on the 25th January. Booking opens Thursday 19th at 7.00pm, closing on Friday 20th at 7.00pm. Cheques, made payable to Grey College JCR Fund (with the booking references and names of people the cheque covers), must be placed in the Exec Pigeon hole in the Post Room no later than Sunday 22nd at 8pm. As was the case with Christmas Formals, this one is so popular that it will be easy to replace anyone who doesn't pay on time.
 
One of the main things which came out of the survey last term was cost, so we've been working really hard to keep the cost low: £9.75 for Livers In, £10.75 for Livers Out. I know this is similar to most Formal Prices, but you have a bottle of whisky, pipers and a ceilidh afterwards. So you're getting a lot more for the same price!
 
I sincerely hope you can join us there! It's set to be an AMAZING night!
 
All the best, and as always get in touch if you have any questions!

Christmas Formals

Good day, Grey!
 
I hope all of you who went to the Informal Ball last night had a cracking time - well done to Charly, Soc Comm, Tech and everyone else involved!
 
So there's this little thing coming up in a week or so...
 
CHRISTMAS FORMALS!!!! 
 
This is one night of festive joy you do NOT want to miss! For Freshers or anyone who hasn't been, think carol singing and crackers, think a three-course Christmas meal, think the Formal that books out faster than any other!
 
So, the menu -
 
 
Starter - Vegetable Soup
 
Main - Traditional Roast Turkey Dinner (with all the trimmings mmmmmm)
          Vegetarian Option - Mushroom and Blue Cheese Loaf, Traditional Vegetables and a Vegetarian Gravy
 
Dessert - Christmas Pudding and Mince Pies
 
 
 
Not only do you get this incredible meal, and half a bottle of wine...each table also gets a bottle of port.
 
The Charity Reps, Emma and Jenny, will have a little something going on to keep you entertained throughout the night.
 
Santa may also leave a little something else for those of you who have made the Good List.
 
 
It couldn't get much better...
 
OH BUT IT COULD!!!
 
 
All of this, plus the unbelievable atmosphere, for £5!!!     
 
Merry Christmas Grey!!!
 
 
Booking for both Formals (Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th) opens on Tuesday 6th December at 7pm - and closes 24 hours later. Red and White wine or non-alcoholic option as usual, Black Tie Dress-code, both Formals start at 7pm sharp.
 
Cheques made payable to Grey College JCR Fund, with who the cheque pays for and the booking reference (3 digits) on the back, MUST be in the Exec Pigeon Hole in the Post Room NO LATER than Thursday 8th December. This Formal will sell out so quickly with so many people wanting to get any spaces going that it will be simple to replace any of those cheques that are not in on time - no Scroogey feelings meant, but that's how it is.
 
Happy Booking!!!

Finalists' Photo Date Confirmed!

Finalists' Photo will be on Saturday 14th May at 2pm on Grey Lawn.

Please remember to bring a prop along for the "informal" photo - it should symbolise your time at Grey, and can be anything as long as it doesn't block other people on the photo.

Some volunteers to help set up about half an hour before hand would be very much appreciated!
