The King’s College London Student Union (KCLSU) is hosting its annual KCLSU Awards on Tuesday 30 May, 2023.

Whether you are a nominee or a guest spectator, if you were lucky enough to grab tickets to this anticipated event you may be wondering what exactly the evening will entail.

The KCLSU awards are the KCLSU’s yearly tradition of honouring student groups and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and ethic over the year. The event will take place in the decadent De Vere Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, and will entail a night of entertainment and celebration. There are three types of awards: Individual Awards, Group Awards, and Project Awards. Nominations were made this past April for categories such as “Most Improved Club of the Year”, “Advocate of the Year”, and the “Community Impact Project of the Year”.

The event will begin at 18:00pm on Tuesday, 30 May, when the doors to the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms will open to admit the first ticket holders. Upon arrival, guests will pick up wristbands and check their coats on the ground floor. After check-in there will then be a chance to walk KCLSU’s red carpet and be photographed and interviewed for student media (including yours truly, Roar News).

Guests will continue from the red carpet to the pre-dinner reception upstairs for complementary prosecco or soft drinks, and to relax to some live music.

At 19:00pm the Great Hall will open to admit guests to find their seats for a three-course dinner, served from 19:00-22:00pm, as well as a live performance from KCL’s Jazz Society. At 21:00pm, just before dessert, the Awards Ceremony will begin, and will continue until around 22:15pm.

After all the awards have been announced, the evening will conclude with a free Afterparty, featuring a DJ, cash-bar, and 360 degrees video booth, going on at the venue until 01:00am.

What is the dress code?

The awards are a black-tie event, so pull out your best outfit!

Do I need my student ID?

Yes, you will need you King’s ID to pick up your wristband. If you are bringing a non-King’s guest, their ticket should be under your name, so you will still need your ID.

What if I can’t attend the event but I still want to see the winners?

Roar will be running live updates throughout the awards on our Twitter and Instagram, so if you can’t make the event you can keep up with winners in real-time. Make sure to keep up with our socials for more information as we get closer to the event.
