The decision of the organisers of this year’s Pondshow to reshape the dynamic of the evening turned out to be a highly popular one. Held on Saturday 2 April, this year’s event featured several well-known DJs rather than live bands, and a single-stage as the focus.
Student President, Noah Waters, said that the Student Club Executive had opted for a different vibe to the event after canvassing ideas from students.
“It proved to be a real winner with everyone,” said Noah. “People really got into the dancing, and enjoyed the whole experience immensely.”
Noah was also delighted that the night was a sell-out.
“We decided to cap numbers at 600 and we designed the layout and the different elements of the event around that number. We didn’t know how COVID might affect ticket sales, so it was really pleasing when we sold out.”
Noah was especially appreciative of his Student Club team who worked so hard to plan, promote and prepare everything for the night, and also other students who volunteered their time to help do tasks such as build the bar, lay the flooring, set up lights, fencing, and all that needed to be got ready.
“As always,” said Noah, “Pondshow was one of the highlights of the year, and a great way to finish off a great term.”
