Spanish, Latin American and Portuguese Society

SLAPS functions to celebrate and promote the learning of the Hispanic Lusophone languages and their respective cultures; be sure to check out our FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM pages to stay up to date. Also read on below to find out more....

Whether you study a hispan-lusophone language, you are a national from one of their countries or you simply have an interest in the diverse cultures, we welcome anyone and everyone to a world of Latin music, fiestas and fiery passion! Throughout the year you can expect us to be hosting events that will tantalise your taste buds, help you meet fellow learners of Spanish and/or Portuguese, get your feet moving and ultimately a smile on your face! Look out for themed culture nights, film screenings, language cafés, plenty of parties, and possibly even a trip to a secret Iberian destination to be revealed at a later date... If you like the sound of what's above, come and pay us a visit at the Bunfight during freshers week to find out more :) After all, according to the very wise Celia Cruz: "La vida es un carnaval!" SO LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED SLAPS love x
