Boardgames and Cake

In one of the oldest and noblest traditions of HackSoc, we descend upon a room, play many boardgames, and eat much cake. Both boardgames and cake are brought along by members, so if you do enjoy the events, please consider bringing something along.


An unprecedented case of joviality and camaraderie has struck HackSoc, and we have responded with a weekly social over in the Ron Cooke Hub cafe on Hes East. Come for lunch, a chat, and maybe a small game or two.


Another tradition with a long and glorious history, the humble HackPub, in which we visit the Rook and Gaskill near Walmgate and converse late into the night with members past and present about high culture, politics, and how old jet engines work over a pint (of something non-alcoholic, if you so desire).

Movie Nights

We gather together to watch a film (or sometimes several). Apparently some of these might have a link to Computer Science, but we haven't spotted one yet.


In which we sit in a room en masse and listen to someone who knows way too much about a very niche topic. We aim for a healthy balance of members, alumni and industry speakers.
