Notice to new and existing JCR members


Brand new software is being developed by myself for formal signup. It will be very different from what we currently have and comes with tonnes of new features. Development has commenced and will be complete in time for the next academic year. You’re more than welcome to have a peek into it; just read my latest JCR blog post here. Please note the rules below are those set for the old software. My new software may have different rules to what is written below (the Services Manager decides this stuff) but it’ll be very easy to use and straightforward.

Formals are a highly-valued tradition here at Castle, with two gowned formals held twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Formal Sign-up Information:

  • In order to sign up for a University College Formal, please find the link on the Castle Fresher’s Facebook page. If you are not successful in getting a place you will automatically be put on a waiting list. 
  • You can cancel your place up to 1pm on the day of the formal; if you do not cancel, you will still be charged.
  • Similarly, if you are on the waiting list, it is your responsibility to check whether you have a place; if a place does become available and you do not attend, you will still be charged
    Your attendance will be recorded and you will receive an invoice at the end of the term
  • Guest Spaces can be applied for online during sign up. Guest spaces are charged at a Liver Out rate.
