Happy Spring, everyone! Here’s hoping for some slightly drier and less cold weather to get us through until the start of summer.

The upcoming few weeks are going to be a busy time for the History Society, and we’ve got lots of events for you to come along to and get involved with!

History Student Awards – Nominations are now open! If you can think of anyone who has made an outstanding contribution to student life, department culture, welfare, sports or shown great social responsibility, nominate them for a glittering award. Please email Eloise Moss (eloise.moss@manchester.ac.uk) with your candidate and reasons before Friday, April 28.

Student vs. Staff Charity Football Match – To raise some money for Manchester Mind, the good sports – pun intended – in the lecturing staff and History FC are going to play each other in a match that promises to be hilarious on Monday, March 27. Come cheer on either side and bring your change for a great cause. Cakes and snacks will also be available to buy.

Summer Ball – This one is fairly self-explanatory. This year we’ve teamed up with the Politics Society to bring you an amazing Summer Ball at the Midland Hotel. Tickets are on sale via the HistSoc Facebook group. Grab them early because they do sell out quickly! Dust off that suit and buy a new dress – let’s get all fancied-up for an evening.

Hope everyone is having a great semester so far and has a restful Easter break. Sending good vibes to second and final years for long essays and dissertations. We’ve got this!
