25th Anniversary Reunion for Residents of Sorby Hall 1996-97

Saturday 16th July 2022, 8pm - 2am
Interval Bar at Sheffield University Students’ Union

Calling all residents of Sorby Hall 1996-1997!

Sorby Hall may be gone now - its iconic box-like profile erased from the skyline in a cloud of concrete dust and asbestos - but that can’t stop us from celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our time living there.

And even though we can’t return to the ‘Scarborough Bar’ or the JCR, on 16th July 2022, for one night only, we’ll be taking over the Interval Bar in the Sheffield University Students’ Union. Find more information about how to get involved below.
