I had the good fortune of repping three of the finest group’s I have ever come across last weekend. Leeds University and I were picked up from outside the Student Union on Friday night for a brisk dash down to Dover to jump on the Ferry to Calais and zoom through to Amsterdam. We played a mammoth game of ‘I have never’ on the first leg of the journey. I acted as narrator and all I can say is I was shocked, but by no means appalled!

…’I have never got naked on this coach!’, ‘Never have I ever had a crush on Harry (Group Leader).’ I have just searched through all the messages on my phone and these are the only two which are suitable to be publicly aired! Good effort Leeds.

The tempo gradually increased until the two groups took over the club, demoting the locals to the edge of the dancefloor and showcasing moves the Cirque du Soleil would have been proud of!

On Sunday morning whilst Leeds and Sussex were resting their weary heads, I went to meet four more coaches from Nottingham University. Again, a true delight!

Sunday night saw another epic group snaking through the streets of Amsterdam as we made our way to one of Amsterdam’s oldest, and most fun clubs – Dansen Bij Jansen. Close to 400 Leeds, Sussex and Nottingham students came together for an amazing evening of fun, dancing, drinking, debauchery and bloody good banter. A night to be…
