Celebrating the AMOSSHE year

Richard Meftah - Creative Imaging (07990 528 451)The Brave New World gala was an opportunity for delegates to relax, network and celebrate their work in student services over the 2013/14 academic year.

The evening started with drinks in the panoramic Cloud 23 bar high above Manchester, and continued with a gala dinner …briefly interrupted by a fire alarm!
