Grand Opening of the Solent University Conference Centre

If you follow me on Instagram (you can find me here), you might have seen that last Thursday I attended the Grand Opening for the Solent University Conference Centre as a member of the SotonBloggers. I didn't go to university in my home town, but the opportunity to have a nosey round was too good an opportunity to pass up, especially as I got the chance to dress up and spend the evening with my favourite bloggers.

To celebrate the launch of the newest university space, we were treated to a Summer Garden Party with dinner and drinks. Walking into the building, you're instantly taken aback The Pod, the newest lecture theatre in the building, which was turned into a photo booth for the night. It really is an impressive piece of architecture, and was the central focus of the evening.

We were treated to a delicious three course meal, starting with the cutest sharing platter served on miniature picnic benches. It really was tasty, and my favourite was the delicious pudding - you know I love my sweet things.

Once dinner was over, we had a chance to wander through the building, to get a real feel for the new building. I'm quite jealous of the students getting the opportunity to study in such a modern, sleek building. Their lectures will be in such fantastic surroundings. There were various different companies for us to talk to, including a Pick 'N' Mix man, and Love Cake.

I had the best evening with my favourite blogging girls, with delicious food and the opportunity to explore a beautiful new academic building. Thank you to Solent University for inviting me.
