Daft Friday [Party Week]
The last day of the fall term at the Glasgow University Union (GUU), the highlight of the GUU’s social calendar, is a black-tie ball called Daft Friday. For one night (until 8am) the entire union is decorated and themed a particular theme, with many acts and festivities available to students.
The year 2009 will be the 100th anniversary of Daft Friday at the GUU. The 99th Daft Friday, held on Friday December 19th 2008, was themed after video games, hence the heading above the mural, PlayUnion. The theme itself is every year a closely guarded secret, revealed to attendees only upon arrival on the big night.
The festivities included a ceilidh, a string quartet, a swing band, indoor laserquest, a flair bar, a casino, a raffle (main prize was a Wii), a drinks reception, with music provided by the Freemasons and Radio 1’s Reggie Yates, and a big name headliner, which I will post a photo of on Saturday (July 11th).
