Christmas Gala: Jinglebeats!

HET GROTE KERSTGALA DER GEESTESWETENSCHAPPEN: JINGLEBEATS!!!

◤►◢ ▬▬ LINE-UP ▬▬ ◤►◢ ▸ SHERAFATIS▸ PANTER▸ BEAU ZWART FOR ENGLISH SEE BELOW

Een echte christmust: Jinglebeats! Ook dit jaar hebben veel studieverenigingen de handen ineen geslagen: AAS, Helios, Kanvas, Laverna, Etcetera, Trilithon, Nordom, Vos, Kleio, SES, Cèrcle d’Amis, Fabula Rasa, Los Guiris en Convivio verzorgen weer een spectaculair kerstgala. Waan je in smoking, jurk of (douche)gordijn een avond lang in winter wonderland en vier kerstmis met de mensen naast wie je al maanden (of jaren) in de collegebanken zit. Een ideale kans dus om (stiekem) met je studiegenootjes te dansen. Kortom: dit festijn mag je niet missen. De timing is uiteraard ook ideaal: tentamens achter de rug en in stijl de kerstvakantie in dansen! De kaartjes zullen 10 euro kosten, deze kun je vanaf donderdag 3 december bij je eigen vereniging kopen. Zorg dus dat je cash op zak hebt of op tijd een mailtje naar het bestuur van je vereniging stuurt! Zoals ieder reclamespotje ooit zei: op = op.

Het festijn zal plaatsvinden in de Panama en om 22:00 zullen de deuren opengaan. Het feest zal tot 04:00 duren, maar LET OP: om 01:00 zullen de deuren sluiten. Mocht je voor aanvang onoverhoopt nog geen kaartje bemachtigd hebben (jij moet je niet aangesproken voelen), dan kun je voor 23:30 nog aan de deur een kaartje kopen, mits het niet uitverkocht is natuulijk!

Neem vooral je moeder, buschauffeur of zoon mee, hoe meer zieltjes, hoe meer vreugd. Wij hebben er ont-zet-tend veel zin, tot dan!

PS: VERGEET NIET JE I.D.-KAART MEE TE NEMEN! _________________________________________________

This year’s christmust:: Jinglebeats! A grand coalition of awesome study associations has once again organized a Christmas gala. Wander around in tuxedo, dress or (shower)curtain in our winter wonderland and celebrate Christmas with the people with whom you’ve spent months (or years) in these lecture halls. An excellent opportunity to have a cheeky little dance with your fellow students. Simply put: you cannot miss out on this glorious occasion. The timing is also, obviously, ideal: finals are over and you get to dance your way into the holidays in style! Tickets will be sold for 10 euros a piece, these can be bought from Thursday 3rd of december onwards through your own study association. Be sure to carry around some spare cash or have some spare time to mail the board of your study association! Like every commercial once said: gone = gone.

The party will be held in the Panama and the doors open at 22:00. Jinlgebeats (unfortunately) ends at 04:00, but BE AWARE: the doors close at 01:00. In case you still don’t have a ticket when all the joy starts, (hope we’re not speaking to you) you can still buy a ticket at the door, if you’re on location before 23:30. Unless it’s sold out, of course!

Take your mum, busdriver or son by the hand and party all night long, the more the merrier! We are in-cre-di-bly excited and can’t wait to see you there!

PS: DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR I.D. CARD
