  • Final Friday: Final Friday (FF) is a regular opportunity for members of staff (academic, teaching and professional services) and research students to meet socially after work on the last Friday of the month. This informal gathering has been very helpful in integrating a number of otherwise professionally disparate groups, and for introducing new members of staff and students to the EI community. It is held in the building atrium, or on the roof terrace when the weather allows. A selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are supplied, as well as a number of pizzas purchased from a local outlet. It commences at 4pm, and generally lasts for around two hours.
  • Summer Picnic: The Summer EI Picnic is held one afternoon at Regent’s Park during the school term holiday to encourage attendance of families and is open to all categories of staff, students, and their children. See pictures of the first picnic from August 2016 (internal page - needs authentication)
  • Festive Party: The Festive Party is free and open to all member of the Ear Institute. In 2016 it was held on Wednesday 14th December in the Ear Institute Atrium. The 2016 programme featured: 1:30-3:00pm  Secret Santa Nicking Game, followed by lots of festive food and drinks! See pictures of the 2016 Festive Party (internal page - needs authentication)
