    Dubrovnik, also known as ""The Pearl of the Adriatic"", is a perfectly preserved medieval city with huge sturdy stone walls built between the 11th and 17th centuries for protection and that back in those years, it used to rival Venice as a trading port.

    Pile Bay

    Pile Gate, the grand entrance to Dubrovnik's old town, complete with drawbridge and Renaissance arch.

    Onofrio’s Fountain, built as a part of the water supply system in the 15th century that was once a vital water source for the town's people.

    The Franciscan church, the third oldest public pharmacy in Europe from the 13th century

    St. Blaise’s church, Dubrovnik's saint patron, and hear his story about him and traditional procession held on his feast day

    Orlando’s column, a 600-year-old column carved in honour of the legendary knight Orlando, who saved Dubrovnik from a siege by Arab pirates in the 8th century

    Sponza palace - state mint and customs house in middle ages

    City Belltower, a beautiful landmark of the Old Town with a bell struck by two bronze men

    Revelin fortress, created to give additional security to the Eastern city gate

    Old Quarantine founded as the first quarantine in Europe in the 14th century

    Fortress of St. John

    FREE

    Find out more

    Hello hillwalkers new and returning!
     
    We welcome you all to a new year of walks, starting off with an annual club tradition - an introductory walk around the picturesque New Forest National Park! This will start and end at the lovely village of Brockenhurst nestled in the heart of the forest, will head out east to the disused airfield at Hatley Moor before moving up and and west through the Perrywood Haseley Inclosure, onto Balmer Lawn and along the A337 back into Brockenhurst. The route will be about 14.1km (8.7 miles) which is slightly shorter than our usual Day Walk length (around 18-22km), so this will be a gentle introduction where we encourage people to turn up and just enjoy the scenery.
     
    This walk shall be split into two groups, each led by a pair of committee members. The first group will be catching the 09:24 train from Southampton Central, which should reach Brockenhurst at 09:37. This group will be led by myself and the club President, Tom. The second group will be an our later, catching the 10:24 train from Southampton Central and will be led by Will, our other Day Walk Secretary and Matt, one of our Away Trip Secretaries.
    If you'd like to come along, you can sign up on this link (which opens at 19:00 on Tuesday 28th): https://walking.susu.org/signup2020/clubEventsSUHC(Memb).php.
     
    You'll need to bring:
    - A packed lunch πŸ₯ͺ
    - Plenty of water πŸ’§
    - Comfortable walking shoes πŸ₯Ύ
    - Suncream πŸ§΄
    - A coat πŸ§₯
     
    Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, we have a list of FAQs below but also feel free to message us on Facebook!
     
    James (Day Walk Sec)
     
    --------------------------
     
    FAQs
     
    How often do you organise walks?
    We organise a walk at least every week. Normally they are on Saturdays, with away trips going on over the weekend. We will occasionally run walks on different days, including Sundays, Wednesdays and evenings too. Look out for the events advertised on our Facebook page and email.
     
    How difficult is the walking?
    They vary, but the idea of them is that they are suitable for anyone. This particular walk is the perfect one to try out as it’s shorter than average and as ever we’ll make sure no one gets left behind. If you are unsure either ask us or try walking around Southampton first (this is also a great way to understand the area if you’re new to it!).
     
    Are there hills?
    Not on this walk. The area around Southampton has very few hills, it’s almost all below 200m, and very typical English rolling countryside. We try to keep our walks cheap, and so not too far away from Southampton. That said, we do try to seek out hills where possible, and our Away trips and Expeditions are usually organised in hillier areas of the UK. If you particularly want to go and climb up some mountains, then get in touch and we’ll put you in contact with the Elite Team.
     
    Why are you called Hillwalking if you don’t always walk up hills?
    It’s a historical name we’ve had for a while (we’re one of the oldest societies at Southampton!) and refers to the ‘sport’ of Hillwalking.
     
    Do I need special footwear/ equipment?
    Generally not for our day walks. We’ll warn you about the terrain where possible, and except for a couple of walks in the winter trainers will be absolutely fine, though be prepared to get them a little muddy on certain walks. However, if you like walking, like dry feet and like the extra comfort, hiking boots are a great investment. Aside from shoes, a rucksack is very useful, and when the weather looks poor, so too is a raincoat. Shops in the city will sell you these for as little as £5 each.
     
    What is a railcard? Is it worth it?
    A railcard is available to anyone studying, or under the age of 30, regardless of nationality. The most common is a 16-25 railcard, for people between the age of 16 and…. 25! This costs £30 and saves 33% of the price of any rail ticket. It’s easiest to buy this online, but you can also do so at the station, but NOT on the day you want to use it! If you want to use the trains a lot, it will save you money. After about six or seven day walks it will start saving you money (we usually travel by train).
    If you always travel in a group, consider either a groupsave ticket (33% for groups of 3-9) or another railcard. Ask if you need more information! (Either ask us or at a station).
     
    I would like to join a society to meet new friends. Are you a friendly/ social group?
    Yes! Our walks are never quiet, and it’s the perfect opportunity to drift around groups, talking to new people. I’d also recommend our socials! Hillwalkers are very friendly and we have an extremely friendly committee too. We have a bit of a tradition of creating strong friendships and a few relationships too. We have a variety of walkers from other societies, walkers from 18 to 30+, from inside and outside the university, from undergraduates to PhDs. We also have a larger international presence than the university itself - which guarantees interesting conversation.
     
    Do you do anything other than walking?
    Yes! We do all sorts for socials although most upcoming ones will be online. Simply look back through our events to get an idea of past events. New and exciting ideas coming soon!!
     
    Do I need to buy membership?
    No, not for day walks or socials though we'd recommend you get our FREE membership from SUSU. There are some advantages to paid membership: have a look on our or SUSU’s website for more information, or contact us. You need paid membership for our away trips.
     
    Can I join any other societies?
    Yes.
     
    Can you give me advice about exploring the area around Southampton, or further afield, by myself?
    Yes, just send us a message!

    After many, many months of development, various playtests and at least one redesign, the long awaited and first fully custom Megagame by members (well, former members now ;) ) of gamesoc is at last here! On the afternoon of Saturday 2nd October (after freshers week), on Discord, we will host On Silent Service - submarine shenanigans in the deep Pacific... designed by , &
    On Silent Service is a small custom megagame for 25 players, with attention to realistic submarine warfare; skill, leadership and teamwork. This game will feature a player-driven narrative with international intrigue, tentacles, paranoia, β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ substances and a β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ from β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. Will honour, sanity and mother’s apple pie be preserved? Or will the world crumble around you as β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ strike from β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ so that β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ may β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ.
    But what is a megagame? For those yet to experience the curated chaos; megagames are large player count er, games; which combine elements of traditional role-playing, board and wargaming; where small teams negotiate with, fight and outsmart one another by exploiting lightweight mechanics, and their own creative problem solving...! The game has been designed to be modular, and other scenarios have been designed for reruns if popular, or oversubscribed.

    This is a guided workshop and Georgia will show you how to create your own faux flower or insect from humble card and paper. We highly recommend you get the materials together so you can make your sculpture while Georgia speaks. This is what you’ll need:

    • Either coloured paper/card or plain paper card with colouring pencils or pens
    • Yourself!

    Book your place via our Native event platform.

    SUHC tries Trail Running

    03 Oct, -
    Ashurst (New Forest) Railway Station Ashurst (New Forest) Railway Station
    Hillwalking

    Hello Hillwalkers!

    Long have we wondered what would happen if you walked slightly too quickly, if you ventured into the realms of having both feet above the ground at the same time. Some said it was impossible, some said we were describing jumping. Others told us to go and find Noah. But no, we were thinking of running.
     
    Running however sounds a bit like hard work. You can't talk when you're giving it your all trying to pace yourself around an onion ring shaped loop, and you can't enjoy the scenery if you're weaving in and out of buses on Glen Eyre hill. (Though if you like those we'd recommend sounding out Athletics Soc!)
     
    What we've discovered is trail running - basically the freedom of running with the scenery that we love here at SUHC. And what we like best is that unlike the city, out in the countryside it's just walkers, and they're very impressed by anyone who dares to swap walking boots for trainers.
     
    So - this Sunday we're going to try it out and see if it's any good, soak up some endorphins and see what all the fuss is about!
     
    There'll be two groups, each leaving from Ashurst New Forest station: one at 13:50, which will be a intro group suitable for anyone who's completed a regular day walk before. This group will not go too far and will aim for a mix of walking and (slow) running through the woods for ~ one hour. This is a lovely area of forest which, so long as it isn't raining, is popular with leisure cyclists and families.
    The second group will leave at 15:50 and will be a little longer, ~2 hours, and suited to strong walkers who think they could sustain a slow run. It's also most definitely open to more committed runners who like the idea!
    For both groups you'll need to bring suitable clothing and footwear - lightweight, synthetic and many thin layers is the name of the game! Decathlon in the city centre is a great place to find some cheap starter gear. You'll also want some snacks and water, and if it's wet, a rainjacket and potentially a change of footwear. We'll have a car to store stuff in at the train station so don't worry about bringing too much.
     
    You can get to Ashurst either by train or by the number 6 bus- the meeting time is just after the train arrives from Soton. We'll also let you know if there are any cars going from the campus area.
    If you're interested, please press one of those nice buttons on FB or (for special insider information) send us an email at walking@soton.ac.uk. Hope to see you there!
     
    Thomas (Expeditions Sec)

    Two years ago our December Away Trip took us to a remote, slightly spooky bunkhouse in the swampy heart of southern England's most mythical and remote place: Dartmoor.
    However former Expeditions Sec Mahmoud missed that trip, so he's gone out of his way to find another place to stay: it's remoter, there's fewer amenities and it's not just spooky, but one of the most haunted places in Britain!
    For those who can brave it, this trip will offer a very good value weekend away in a very unusual place, and a great introduction to either bothying or wild camping, with somewhere to shelter if it rains. But be warned! There's no power here, nor mattresses to sleep on or a flushing toilet.
    This trip is all about the location, so any walks we'll do will be local to the area, exploring the local archaeology, myths and legends and hopefully getting the full Dartmoor experience. You don't need to be a strong or experienced walker - just prepared to be stuck in the middle ages for a night or two.
     
    The cost of this trip is £10, which covers accommodation for two nights, the very best in Mediterranean cuisine* and transport to and from Exeter in the limo like comfort of the world's most reliable car, with shuttles going throughout Friday evening and returning late Sunday afternoon.
    You will need to get to Exeter (~£27 return from Southampton by train). There's plenty of space in the house so we should be able to give everyone a space who wants it, though we only have limited amounts of roll mats and sleeping bags available to hire.
    If you are interested or have any questions (no commitment needed at this point) either send one of us a message -see the event co-hosts- or have a look at the Google Doc listed here https://docs.google.com/.../1vSo5SUXOqTc1pvHeKXNuugM.../edit.

    On this Live Virtual Tour, you will learn first-hand what locals love about Paris from someone who knows the place inside-out. On your tour, you will:

    Visit Trocadero, an iconic residential neighbourhood with French noble associations, the seventh arrondissement comprises some of the most amazing gardens, eateries and markets in Paris.

    Enjoy a wonderful view of the capital’s most famous monument from the Champs de Mars park, a very popular location where people go for picnics, to play music, meet up, and after dark, it becomes the ideal spot to watch the tower sparkle with lights.

    If heading across the Seine to Paris’ Left Bank, many visitors will automatically make a beeline for the Eiffel Tower, unaware that the surrounding area is home to a wealth of other exciting troves. An iconic residential neighbourhood with French noble associations, the seventh arrondissement comprises some of the most amazing museums, gardens, eateries and markets in Paris. That said, there's no better time to take in a stunning view of one of the world's most iconic scenes. The elevated "Troca" provides a splendid view of the Eiffel Tower, a symbol of Paris, as it's located on the opposite bank of the Seine and it's the perfect scenario to hear about its history and the importance of its location.

    The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an unprecedented global emergency.

     

    In this public talk, Emeritus Professor, Ray Monk, will discuss what science tells us about where our planet is heading and offer solutions through the study of social movements. This is our chance to not only show the evidence of what is currently going on and what will happen if we continue to ignore the warning signs but guide people towards how to help make positive changes.

     

    Everyone is welcome, bring all your friends!! There will be time to ask questions afterwards. You can also find out how to get involved with Extinction Rebellion Southampton if you are not already a member. The talk and Q&A will run from 17:00 - 18:30.

    In this talk, Muhammad Talut, currently undertaking his PhD at the University of Southampton, will explain his goal for a Global Energy Movement (GEM).

    The GEM is a socio-technical global movement that addresses the construction of a worldwide interconnected electrical super-grid entirely based upon renewable resources only. In the line of sustainable socio-economic progress of human civilization on mother earth, there is no alternative to the best use of renewable energy sources.

    Hopefully, with the rapid evolvement in energy technology concentrating on efficiency and economics, the renewable sources will triumph over the conventional ones by the next thirty years. Then new challenges of energy distribution and resource allocation will arise in the energy arena since sustainable development will take sharp bends towards integrated global approach.

    An interconnected Global Renewable Energy Grid can solve these issues. This movement intends to encourage humanity to move towards the noble dream!

    The talk and Q&A will run from 19:00 - 20:30.

    Isle of Wight Day Walk

    FREE

    Find out more

    Greetings hillwalkers!
     
    We hope our Brockenhurst walk last Sunday provided a good introduction to our hillwalks, and whet your appetite for more. If so, then we've got an excellent follow up walk for you in the form of a Daywalk (or more accurately, a day trip) to the Isle of Wight - an annual club tradition.
    This walk will start at the coastal town of Yarmouth, heading west along the north coast and down to the famous 'Needles' rock feature. From there we climb up Tennyson Down (stopping off at the monument), head along it then down into Freshwater, before finally following the River Yar through the centre of the Isle of Wight, up and back into Yarmouth. The walk promises a plethora of coastal views and stunning scenery.
    This walk shall be split into two groups. The first group will be led by Will and Matt Clark, and you should aim to be at Southampton Central for 7am to catch the 07:21 train to Weymouth, changing at Brockenhurst to catch another train down to Lymington.
    The second group, led by James and Tom Daly, will catch the 08:17 train to Weymouth, again changing at Brockenhurst to get the train down to Lymington, so for Group 2 you will need to be at Southampton Central for approximately 8am.
     
    If you are travelling down to Southampton Central by bus, we would strongly urge you to catch an earlier bus than you think you will need, partially to account for any delays, but also because there is not a lot of time between the later buses arriving, and the train departing.
    For both groups, you will need an off-peak day return to Yarmouth (Isle of Wight). This ticket includes access to the Wightlink Ferry that we take to cross from Lymington to the Isle of Wight, and will cost £18.65 with a railcard, and £28 without one.
     
    Sign Up Deets!
    Sign Up goes live this evening (5th) at 7PM sharp! Sign Up quick to avoid any dissappointment as this is one of our most popular walks!
    If you'd like to come along, please sign up by following this lovely link: https://walking.susu.org/events.php.
    You'll need to bring:
    - A packed lunch
    - Plenty of water
    - Comfortable walking shoes
    - A waterproof coat (In the case the weather's looking a little 'r' wordy)
     
    We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, we have a list of FAQs on this event's Facebook page but also feel free to message us!

    Hillwalking

    FREE

    Find out more

    Greetings hillwalkers!
     
    We hope all 103 of you enjoyed last weekend’s sunny Isle of Wight walk, so for this weekend’s walk we’ll be sticking with the coastal theme, but with some rather different views (and thankfully fewer steep hills!). For this week’s walk, we will be walking 16km between the coastal towns of Portchester and Cosham, on the outskirts of Portsmouth. This route will go through the ancient Portchester Castle, along the coastline and up Portsdown Hill with a Napoleonic fort and excellent views over Portsmouth and the Solent.
     
    This walk will once again be split into two groups. The first, led by Matt C and James, will catch the 09:13 train from Southampton Central, reaching Portchester at about 09:45. The second group, led by Tom D and Will, shall catch the 10:13 train from Southampton Central, subsequently reaching Portchester by 10:45.
    **Please note that the ticket you will need is the "Off Peak Day Return to COSHAM**, since our walk will start at Portchester and end at Cosham (one stop further down the train line).
    When you buy a ticket, you'll notice there are 2 prices:
    - one is "Southern Only" costing £9.80 or £6.35 with a Railcard.
    - the other is a normal any operator return, costing £11.30 or £7.45 with a Railcard.
    If you're in a hurry to return after the walk, we'd recommend you get the any operator ticket, giving you 4 return train options per hour.
     
    You'll need to bring:
    - A packed lunch
    - Plenty of water
    - Comfortable walking shoes
    - A coat
     
    Although we are ending mandatory sign-ups for daywalks from this point onwards, you can still sign up if you would like (and for test-and-trace purposes) at https://walking.susu.org/events.php. If you are interested but unsure, please click the “interested” button on the facebook event, and similarly if you are pretty confident you can make it, click the “going” button. This is just so we have a rough idea of numbers, but on the day, simply turn up at the time that corresponds to whichever group you’d like to join.
     
    Hope to see lots of you there!! πŸ˜ƒ

    We are delighted to welcome South London pianist Ashley Henry with his trio. One of a new generation of musicians that have been raised with a wide range of influences, Ashley is clearly influenced by hip-hop but has his roots firmly in jazz. 

    Having recently embarked on world tours with Loyle Carner and Christine & The  Queens, Henry has a rapidly growing international profile. 

    ‘My music is a straight-up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed-up glory. The  immigrant in me has musical roots traced back to the 1940’s, so it’s important my music  reflects that jazz narrative across different genres and generations.’

    Union Films, your student cinema, presents the Jordan Peele Trilogy: 'Get Out', 'Us' and 'Candyman'.

    • Get Out - A young African-American visits his white girlfriend's parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point. 
    • Us - A family's serene beach vacation turns to chaos when their doppelgängers appear and begin to terrorize them. 
    • Candyman - A fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend that your friend's older sibling probably told you about at a sleepover: Candyman. 

    Tickets can be bought on the door.
