Please Read This

This event is a QUESTS event, i.e a QUB Society. We love having people who can float in and out, but the fact is that the only way we can get funding to start growing is from the university (and from you guys), and to do that we need to get more strict about membership fees.

The reason we can run this event is with the kind cooperation of QUB DragonSlayers. Our arrangement with them is that members of QUESTS can get into the DS24 event and vice versa for the same member rate of £5.

To be able to take advantage of that price you must be a current, signed up, member of QUESTS

Which means:

  • £3 for QUB Students
  • £5 for Associates (Non-QUB)

Bringing our 'show up on the day' totals to:

  • £8 for QUB Students
  • £10 for Associates (Non-QUB)

After which all subsequent events you attend will be at the lowest possible rate, regardless of whether you are QUB or not.
