Student leaving party before summer
With university over, the next few weeks will be full of emotional goodbyes and long journeys back home for the summer. In some cases it'll be months before you see your course mates or housemates again, and if you're in your final year, it could be even longer before you're reacquainted with some of your closest friends. Before heading home, it's great to have a final get together before parting company indefinitely, so if you're looking for a way to celebrate the end of the year and enjoy a last evening out together before heading home, here are our top suggestions. BBQ The British weather might not be the most dependable, however when the sun comes out and the temperature rockets, we don't need much of an excuse to get out into the garden and enjoy some food and drinks in the sun. If you're looking for a relatively cheap send off, and can't afford the expense of heading out and spending large amounts, then staying in with friends and enjoying a garden barbecue with a few sociable drinks is a great idea. Head to your local supermarket, stock up on burgers, sausages and chicken and enjoy the weather when the sun comes back out. Entertainment If you're hunting fun and different activities to enjoy, Leeds has a number of quirky spots that you head to. Offering something a bit more than just a meal, locations such as the independent Everyman cinema, allow you to enjoy food and drink in a trendy location whilst also enjoying the latest cinematic masterpiece from the comfort of a sofa. With snacks of pizza, olives and frozen yoghurt to name just a few of the luxuries available throughout your film, it's a great alternative if you're searching for entertainment in Leeds. Similarly, the new Roxy Lanes is an American style bar and bowling alley, at which you can enjoy a social gathering with nibbles and drinks, whilst also engaging your competitive spirit in a few frames of ten-pin. Meal Good sharing restaurants make for the perfect 'last supper' with your friends from university. The 'all dig in' attitude means you'll enjoy a relaxed attitude, and with nibbles, tapas, sharing plates and plenty of drinks, it makes for a fun way to send off some of your closest friends. Leeds has plenty of ideal restaurants for this type of evening, so whatever cuisine you're in the mood for, there should be plenty of destinations that fit the bill. Return for a festival The Leeds area is great when the summer is in full swing, and whether you're a fan of large scale mainstream music festivals or smaller independent offerings, both can be found around the Leeds area. If saying goodbye it just too tough, why not agree on an event to all head back for, to break up those long summer months away from your mates? With the likes of the Arctic Monkeys and Queens of the Stone Age at Leeds, or Example and the Pet Shop Boys at Bingley, there are options to suit all differing student tastes.
