The Barn

On campus we have our two main venues for all of our student nights and events. We have The Welly, which is our student pub and The Barn which hosts our weekly student club night, FLOCK and all of our bigger themed balls. Take a look at their pages to find out more about what’s on!

The Barn is our student night club ON campus. Our club aims to provide a safe space for students to enjoy a night out at student prices! From themed nights to having famous bands and DJs perform, our venue is a place where memories are made.

We host our weekly Wednesday club nights FLOCK throughout term and host some of our bigger events such as Christmas Ball, Hobgoblins and Paddy’s Ball. The venue has a stage, multiple bars and is decked out with the high quality audio and lighting tech. Some of the bigger DJs you might recognise we have had are; Wilkinson, Sub Focus, Shift Key, Sigma, Switch Disco plus many more!

FLOCK Wednesday:

On each Wednesday we take the opportunity to make the most of student’s academic diaries being emptier and left open for time spent doing leisure activities such as sports, societies and relaxing. So, we came up with FLOCK!

FLOCK is our weekly student club night that always has a theme. From Love Island to ducks, we do everything, and the outfits are always entertaining. Don’t worry – dressing up isn’t a requirement, but we are sure by the end of term you will want to be dressing up to! Each week we change it up, so two FLOCKS are never the same. We’ve had surfboard machines, free item giveaways, confetti canons and food trucks so you really have everything you need for the best night out!

Take a look at the FLOCK events we have coming up:

Annual Balls/Big Weekends:

Each year we host a range of balls that celebrate some of the big events for a student at Harper which are hosted annually. These are Harper’s own version of a ball, so get ready for big artists, live music, extravagant themes, fair rides and VIP dinners!

Our annual big events are:

Freshers Ball – Our favourite way to kick of the year and start the year as we mean to go on!

Big Weekend – This weekend is the way Harper celebrates Halloween, a big weekend from Friday – Sunday.

Christmas Ball – Celebrating Christmas time and the end of the first time, we have themes from Narnia to the Yule Ball.

Hobgoblins – A weekend where we reunite our alumni with current students for a weekend of sports and fun nights out.

Paddy’s Ball – We have a large number of Irish students at Harper and St. Patrick’s Day is always celebrated to its full extent.

Summer Ball – This event marks the end of the academic year and is celebrated by all. The event runs both indoors and outdoors in the summer sun and hosts a fairground, food stalls and a VIP dinner.

Final Year Dinner – A bit different to our balls, but this event definitely deserves a mention. See the year off with your cohort and finish your time at Harper in style.
