    Sorry man, i missed your reply until now! What's the city like for going out? I know the sugarhouse has an alternative night and there's one in morecambe i think. Anywhere else? And good pubs for students in the area? One more thing - how feasible is it to get doen to manchester for the occasional gig?

    Hey, Sorry 4 taking so long to reply, I am back in lancadter now and have only just got onto the computers.

    The alternative scene in Lancaster is sadly lacking. The sugarhouse is ok as a venue for bands but not great. This term I know shed seven and starsailor are playing there but that's about it for big names. Every thursday there is "popscene" at the sugarhouse which is basically a cheesy type indie nite which is quite popular and not a bad night out as it has comedy or live music before the tunes come on. There are a couple of alternative type pubs, "the bobbin" which is quite handily by the supermarket. And I think "the alex" does a rock night. On the plus side I know the alternative and rock music societies are quite active with trips to gigs and club nites in manchester, liverpool etc.

    To save me typing all this stuff in I'd be quite happy to meet up with you in freshers week and answer any Q's you still have but don't know who ask.

    My e-mail is [email protected]

    obviously I'll understand if you're too busy or not comfortable with doing that... freshers week is a pretty busy time. But the offer stands...

    btw, which college are you in?

    I'm sure you'll have much fun here! hehe!

    A bloke I've been seeing for a couple of months has just gone off to Lancaster Uni and he loves it!

    After only a week he was a typical student type, living of fast food, spending all his reddies on BEER and quite possibly getting laid left right and centre!

    AWESOME! Might pack in the job and become a student myself!!!
