Wild at the BFI London Film Festival


Gather round film-lovers, for it’s that time of year again – yes, the BFI London Film Festival is back! It saddens me to say that I did not get the chance to see this year’s prime starlets, (Mr Turner, Foxcatcher and The Imitation Game spring to mind) but all is not lost. ‘Wild’ has crept […]

Gone to the Movies – Gone Girl


Having sold over 2 million copies, it is fair to say the adaptation of the book ‘Gone Girl’ was going to come with a fair bit of anticipation. Similar to Fincher’s previous film, ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’, there was plenty of pressure coming from fans of a much beloved book to get this […]

“Boots on the Ground!” – The RHUL Symphony Orchestra, The Student Body, and Rebecca Miller


The Royal Holloway Symphony Orchestra kicked off the new term in September with a concert that filled the Windsor Auditorium beyond its own doors.

An update from your on-campus shows!


The Real Inspector Hound Inspector Hound has been rehearsing hard for the last two weeks, getting every gasp and melodramatic cry on point. The show is now blocked and the polishing is well into its last stages. Our crew is currently preparing for our quiz and launch nights, and as we enter the final couple […]

Hans Zimmer Revealed


There have been a handful of film composers whose scores have entered the public consciousness, becoming more than just scores but rather an entrenched part of modern culture. Hans Zimmer is one such composer, and on the 10th and 11th of October, he hosted performances of his work in London. He walked on stage to […]

Cheap Day in London


Yes, Egham is a little further out than the average London University. You probably felt vaguely cheated when you realised that the “short trip into central London!” turned out not to include the time needed to trudge to the station, barge your way through Waterloo, and submerge yourself on the underground. So here’s a list of […]
