The March 1986 issue of Student is now live! With the NUS setting new records for turnout to their annual national demonstration, a controversial Charity Ball raising over £1000, and an exclusive interview with one of Britain’s most famous classical composers, this pre-holiday issue packs a big punch!
- The annual National Student Demonstration in London hosted by the National Union of Students (NUS) was “the biggest event in the union’s 62 year history.” An estimate of 35,000 students from across the UK attended, with EUSA subsidising a bus ride for Edinburgh students to attend, as they did this year for the 2016 NUS Demonstration.
- Student interviewed Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, one of the most prominent British composers of the 20th century, who was patron to the Edinburgh University Music Society.
- The Colonial Society hosted a Charity Ball which succeeded in raising over £1,000.
