The Social Events Team is responsible for maintaining the family spirit within The Economist’s Society. To accomplish our objective, we host a wide range of astonishing events for both male and female, drinkers and non-drinkers, authoritarians and free-marketers. Our annual socials calendar kickstarts with the thrilling Freshers’ events involving a trip to the Bank of England, a party bus tour of twilight London, and the hotly anticipated Beveridge Bar Crawl. Furthermore, we organise the breath-taking EU Trip where you can experience major economic institutions as well as the nightlife of Europe during reading week. The Team also takes pride in providing the Christmas spirit for all Economics students. Classic Christmas, a gift wrapped package containing ice-skating, cocktails, and a jolly atmosphere, is the Social Team’s early present to The Society. The Annual David Ricardo Ball has always been THE social event to close the academic year at UCL. A dramatic affair comprised of wonderful meals and drinks to an endless night of dancing, the David Ricardo Ball is the right way to finish your magnificent journey with The Economist’s Society.
