UniFloyd Studio Recording

The Student Union invites you to a sing-and-record session tomorrow 1 June from 5pm-5:50pm in the Caskin Theatre, room SL26, of the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama to save the 171 job cuts staff are facing at our university. Students and Staff welcome!

This will lay down the track “We Don’t Need No Education” which will be used for Monday’s 5:15pm sing-a-thon on the Alan Gilbert Learning Centre Commons. Some fun, new lyrics will be up on a screen!

A few things:

(1) Please wear (if you can) a black T-shirt or top from the waist up.

(2) If you wish to sing anonymously (it will be video recorded), that’s no problem! Please bring a mask or wear one which we will provide (we only have 20 masks available!). Or wear heavy make-up!

(3) You’ll need to know ahead of time the tune (which is here, starting at 2:20 into video )

A strong turnout is VITAL! We start recording at 5pm sharp; it will finish at 5:50pm.

If you can attend, PLEASE email Sorcha at so we plan for the number of people who will help out.
