WINNER OF THE STUDENT UNIONS "EVENT OF THE YEAR 2016" – PUB CRAWL!
Welcome to RAMS - Staffordshire University’s premiere group for all things Rock, Alternative & Metal! With us you will find a home amongst a family of likeminded charlatans and saints, all with the same driving love for music, drinking and merrymaking!
Only as a member of RAMS will you experience the alternative nightlife that Stoke has to offer in its full and wonderful glory, alongside people that will quickly become your closest friends and drinking buddies!
Hallmark sentiments aside, a membership with RAMS will also bring you a host of other benefits that will only serve to boost and heighten your student experience here at Staffs.
- Free or Discounted Entry to Stokes’ many Rock Events
- Free Entry to our very own TAKEOVER rock nights at the LRV & Verve
- Subsidised Day Trips and Society Products
- Discounted Travel for Group Gig Events here or in Manchester & Birmingham
- And much much more!
A typical week with RAMS usually consists of at least one big club night at any one of our favoured local rock venues, complimented by a more relaxed social night at a pub, university venue or perhaps just a game night at a member’s house. These events are supplemented with our own monthly TAKEOVER’s where we invade the university club venue and blast our own music through their lovely loud speakers, with live acts occasionally coming to play for us too!
Our members are also prominent with various things to further supplement our society such as Rock Karaoke, a monthly event run by one of our members which we frequent to show our support and participate in Rock Quizes/Bingo to win free bevvies (!) and drunkenly sing our hearts out! Alongside this we have a radio show run by a member of our committee on OMG Radio.
This year will also consist of subsidised days out to things such as paintballing, bowling, laser quest and more, and transport to gigs (should a sufficient number of people want to go). We have a big group society photo in 2nd semester, more TAKEOVER events, access to exclusive society products like shirts and hoodies and a lot more being planned.
There is a place for absolutely everybody within the RAMS ranks no matter your music taste, personal style, gender, sexuality, religion or anything! Come and see us at the freshers fair, peruse our Facebook & Union pages or get in touch with us directly to find out more.
