I was recently invited along with the Soton bloggers to the opening of the new Solent university conference centre. It was such a great evening full of great food, champagne and laughs! We were greeted at the door with champagne and before the great reveal. The building is massive, so many different bits to explore. Photo credit – Solent university Photo credit – Solent university
We were shown to our table and tucked into a beautiful 3 course meal. There were selfie props for us to play with and a fantastic live band playing!
The Solent university know how to throw an event. As if there wasn’t enough to see and do, we were kept entertained all night. There was a Gordon Ramsey imperstonator who was scarily identical – I had to double check with someone! He presented the raffle which one of our very own Soton bloggers actually won a prize on!
After we scoffed the food it was time to explore the amazing new building…
It’s so much more than just another university building they offer so much for everyone. You can host meetings, conferences, weddings, parties, you name it!
I was really impressed with the whole building. Solent university students are very lucky! There are numerous lecture theatres but my favourite has to of been the Pod… The big red thing in the middle! It’s a full sized lecture theatre however it was turned into a photo booth for the evening… A bunch of bloggers and a photo booth – you can imagine how much fun we had!
Love cake – a local bakery donated this magnificent cake for the opening event. How beautiful is it?! And then possibly my favourite bit… They hired a sweet cart for the guests too!
I had a fab evening nosing around the new building with the girls, the food was yummy and we had a lot of fun! If your local and in need of a venue then definitely have a look at their website (here) and if you are a student at Solent then you’re in for a treat!
Thanks for inviting us Solent university!
