Will there be food?

There will be cakes at the bake sale over the lunch break. Bring spare cash to buy them. Nearest ATMs are at the EUSA Potterow Dome (next to the cafe and next to the entrance to the Chaplaincy), and on Nicholson Street (RBS and Sainsbury's).

Papa Jones pizzas will be delivered around 6 pm so that you can boost your energy levels before the Ceilidh. 

There won't be any alcohol provided, but you can certainly bring your own bottle!
