Theatre Tickets at a Price You Can’t Afford to Miss

When you’re 40 minutes from central London, with a return ticket for as little as £7, studying at Royal Holloway is a drama student’s dream. But being a regular theatre-goer comes at a hefty price if you’re not savvy about how to nab the most reasonably priced tickets. Student life is expensive enough as it is, so I’ve compiled a list of the best ways to maintain your theatre addiction and save your pennies. Mousetrap Theatre Projects has a scheme called westend4£10 if you’re 19-25 (or theatrelive4£5 if you’re 18!) where they organise trips to the biggest shows currently in the West End, often accompanied with a backstage tour or Q&A to make the experience even better. You can sign up for free on their website. PROMPT offers students great deals from £16 to some of the best West ...

Backpacking for Less

It’s that time of year again – the end of the year has got us all dreaming about our summer holidays, prowling the low cost sites for a cheap deal.

The weekend to-do list

Whether it’s an activity that gets your adrenaline pumping or a relaxing walk through a park, everyone should spend some time away on the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of things to do on campus that should definitely be checked out, but after a while you will probably be wanting something new and different – so listen up! RELAX: For those of you wanting a chill day (or romantic night!) of strolling through a beautiful area, it is definitely necessary to visit Windsor.   With a change at Staines, it is a fast, easy and cheap train ride to Eton Riverside station. There are plenty of places along the river that are perfect for a picnic and there is also a huge beautiful park by the central station as well that is really peaceful to walk through!
