Newcastle-Durham SingSoc Christmas Dinner 2010! (Sponsored by the Overseas Singaporean Unit)

Yes! Its back! After a year’s worth of waiting, Newcastle (together with Durham) SingSoc is back with its Annual Grand Christmas Dinner for 2010. This year, we have an all new location, but will still provide as much fun, great food, and a chance to celebrate Christmas before we go off for the holidays.

Members of SingSoc receive a very special rate this year, with thanks to the Overseas Singaporean Unit.

There will be a lucky draw, gift exchange, and good food!

Get your tickets early! Seats are limited, and based on the record of previous years, you may end up on the waiting list if you are too late. Be warned…

Get your tickets from any SingSoc committee member (Lidong, Sun Wen, Desmond, Alastair, Kristle) or contact us via the comments box/facebook. Please also choose your courses when making your ticket purchase.
