KCLSU & Societies

The 2024 KCLSU Awards Are Here!

The annual King’s College London Student Union (KCLSU) Awards are going to be held on Tuesday 28 May 2024.

The KCLSU awards are on of the most highly anticipated student events of the year, a night of fun and celebration awaits all its attendees. But what can we expect from the evening ahead?

What are the awards about?

The end of the academic year brings with it the opportunity to celebrate all of the achievements of individuals and societies over the last two terms. It is a time where the KCLSU recognises the commitment, dedication and successes of all those who have contributed to life at King’s. Following with tradition, this year’s awards will be held in the De Vere Connaught Rooms near Covent Garden. The ceremony and dinner will be hosted in the Grand Hall which seats an impressive 750 people.

As nominees and nominators will know, the awards themselves are broken down into three categories, the Individual Awards, Group Awards and Project Awards. A wide variety of achievements are presented each year with a particular covet on wins such as the ‘Honorary Life Membership Award’, ‘Group of the Year’ and ‘Change Makers of the Year Award’.

What can you expect from the event?

Upon arrival, guests can check in their coats and pick up their wrist bands before the walk up the red carpet leading into the Grand Hall. On the carpet guests can expect a greeting from us here at Roar, microphones at the ready, to interview nominees and talk through their evening’s expectations and hopes for their societies.

Entry into the Grand Hall, alongside its stunning interior, will greet guests with a live music event, an opportunity to connect with other students and drinks, before the dinner begins. Dinner is a three course meal with table service, and as a reporter from last year I can confirm those attending dinner are in for a treat!

Afterwards, the ceremony will commence, awards will be won, drinks will be drunk, and the evening will then continue into an afterparty in the reception area upstairs. The afterparty will of course have great music, a bar and several fantastic photo opportunities.
