TOP 10 THINGS TO SEE AND DO AT OWEEK
This year’s program is so jam packed with music, comedy, parties, clubs, activities and freebies, so we've put together a top 10 countdown to help you navigate this year's OWeek.
#10 Free Brekkie
ACCESS members will be able to grab a free brekkie from Breakfast Island (on the Front Lawns) each morning from 9am, now with a vegan/gluten free option. Don’t throw yourself into OWeek without the most important meal of the day!
#9 Time Travel Tunes with Sydney University Wind Orchestra
Check out the Sydney University Wind Orchestra’s renditions of your favourite time travel tunes down the Wormhole!
#8 Revues’ Showcase
Music! Comedy! Nudity! All singing, all dancing, all joking and all fully clothed (hopefully), come and see the very best of the Sydney University Revue season at Manning Bar.
#7 Wom*n's Comedy Debate
Strap yourselves in for a night of completely pointless and scientifically inaccurate arguments, at the comedy debate of the season! Featuring MEL BUTTLE, ALEX LEE, KATIE BURCH, ALICE FRASER, ALEX WASIEL and special guest SARAH GAUL in the Quad from 6. Hey, who you callin’ chicken?
#6 MADSOC Teaches the Timewarp
Fancy yourself a dancer? Yes? Not at all? Doesn’t matter, MADSOC have got you covered. Come down to the Wormhole main stage on the Front Lawns and let’s all do the timewarp again!
#5 Opening Night Party: Back to 1985
Manning Bar will be pumping with your favourite 80s tunes plus all the latest from last year's Sydney Uni DJ comp winner. Looking for something a little more chilled? Under 18? Head to the bottom floor of Manning House for Cafe 80s, complete with games, pinball machines and much more.
#4 Doctor Who Trivia
Calling all Gallifreyans, this one’s for you. Join the Thirteenth Doctor (Ciaran Magee) and his sexy companion Patrick (Patrick Morrow) as they challenge your knowledge of the greatest show in the galaxy! Entry is free and there are prizes to be won, so come on down to Manning Bar for the best trivia in all of time and space.
#3 Time Travel with Dr Karl
Got a sciencey question you want answered? We’re lucky to have Dr Karl Kruszelnicki returning to OWeek to address all your queries and curiosities about the wide world of science!
A battle of wits meets spontaneous combustion, as student teams of the best and brightest performers compete to make you cry with laughter, laugh with crying, and craugh with funbeauty. A Sydney Uni institution for decades, Theatresports in Manning Bar is the only place to spend your Thursday lunchtime!
#1 OWeek Closing Night Party
Winding down? Not just yet, sleep can wait til after our awesome OWeek closing night party because we’ve got an unbelievable line-up of Aussie artists locked and loaded, thanks to our Party Partner Barcadi. Dance around like a mad thing to the sounds of She Rex, Madame Wu and ALLDAY! Head back up to Manning Bar for a massive party to polish off your OWeek. There’s not much time left, you can’t go back again (or can you?), so make it count!
