I hope everyone had a nice return to term and is ready for another week of Sci-Fi and Fantasy!
Thrillingly, the new IOE bar has opened and we’ll be continuing to journey there after some of our events. It’s just above the old Institute bar (not the Outside Bar). You can get in either through the IOE lobby or through the patio of the old Institute.
