Christian Union Acoustic Night

The Christian Union hosted a love-based acoustic night in Stumble Out.

CU Acoustic NightThe night featured the musical ensemble Alice and Shona who sang acoustic chart music from stars such as Ellie Goulding, Jason Mraz and The Black Eyed Peas.
Suzie Troup did an acoustic guitar set with love favourites such as John Mayer’s “Love is a Verb” and Carly Rae Jepson “I Really Like You”.

The night was broken up by Nicole Acquah’s original spoken word poem followed by Sabriena and Docus’ innovative mash up of “Ain’t No Rock”. The night even showcased Royal Holloway Alumni as the gospel girl band “Hope Gene” came to the stage. The award for the queens of multi-tasking goes to Alice, Hayley and Hannah from “Alice” and the “Almond Pots” who managed to play the flute, violin, guitar and keyboard in their set as well as having some awesome harmonies.

The crowd favourite seemed to be Eliz, Same and Joe who closed the show with covers from Gnarls Barkley, Walk the Moon and Toploader.

Overall the night provided a chilled atmosphere to catch up with friends and listen to some amazing talent.
