Forthcoming events

This year the University celebrates its 50th anniversary and we're commemorating this milestone with a range of events including alumni reunions, art exhibitions, lectures and special talks.

The Happening - 11 November

The University’s Art Collection is throwing open the doors of the Pathfoot Building for an event celebrating the revolutionary spirit of 1967. The Happening will recreate the artistic and intellectual spirit of the era that spawned flower power, the counter culture and civil rights. The musical revolution of the period provides the centerpiece of events with an exhibition in the Crush Hall highlighting the key songs of 1967.

Events begin at 3pm with a family-friendly range of activities including screening of the Jungle Book art workshops, tie-dying classes, 1960s music pop quiz and tours of the new 1967 themed exhibition. Recreate the classic 60s look with our vintage hairdressers and dressing-up boxes, and revisit those rainy childhood afternoons with a selection of board games from the period - all soundtracked by a selection of the musical highlights of 1967 curated by DJ Groovy Dave T.

Things turn even groovier after 7pm with an evening of film and music beginning with a screening of The Graduate, one of the key films of 1967. From 8pm the Crush Hall will host our #Stirling50 Disco with DJ Karlski providing a musical journey through 50 years of student disco classics, taking the dancefloor from the psychedelic pop of 1967 through soul, ska, disco, punk, acid house, Britpop, hip-hop and all points in between! Embrace the spirit of the Happening by wearing the fashions of 1967 and enjoy a tasty buffet of 1960s fashioned grub!

Free entry to Pathfoot from 3pm – 6pm. Tickets for the evening event cost £19.67 and include admission to The Graduate, disco, 1960s themed food, 1960s sweetie cart, welcome drink and entry to 1960s raffle.

There will be prizes for the best 1967 outfit- fancy dress encouraged but not compulsory!

Cash bar.
