News | Student to stage party of the year

Music student Ross Muir could be bringing a spectacular 3D visual party worth up to £30k to the Union.

The third year has reached the final stages of a competition giving students the opportunity to pitch their ultimate party idea for their university. The winner will receive a £30,000 investment to fund their plans.

Muir’s creation would involve setting up an enormous canvas dome with stereo imaging projected onto it. The student told LS: “We want to get a lot of Leeds brands involved in the night to make sure we have something for everyone there.”

He added: “I want it to be the event that shows Leeds for the epic party scene it is.”

If the bid is successful, the event will be held before the summer. Muir has already received over 1,000 votes online but the current frontrunner is the University of Surrey.

Union Affairs Officer, Bradley Escorcio said: “It’s great to see one our students shortlisted as a finalist for the competition. Hosting Ross’ concept of a 3D visual party would be a great and unique experience for the students of Leeds so we have our fingers crossed for him!”

Voting information can be found on the Red Bull Nightmaster website and closes on December 4.
