A night to remember

Students see off exam season in style at the Coca-Cola Shred Party

Thousands of students enjoyed performances from five top 40 artists last Friday at the Coca-Cola Shred Party.

The free event came as part of the Students' Union's end of term celebrations and included performances from renowned artists: Ramz, Mabel, Raye and Jax Jones.

Rapper and comedian Big Shaq made a surprise appearance with his joke song 'Man's Not Hot' at the end of the night.

Students who attended the event said it was a "great way to see off three years at uni" and described it as a 'perfect' and 'brilliant evening'.  

Attendees received up-to two free Coca-Cola cocktails when they recycled their plastic bottles at the event.

In light of the tragic events at Mutiny Festival, the Students’ Union decided to increase the security presence to enhance student safety and ensure all soft drinks were available for free to ensure students were able to stay hydrated throughout the event.

Students' Union President, James Thompson, said: "I want to say a massive thank you and well done to everyone that made the Shred Party possible.

"It was an unreal event and we put on a show that let students end their year in style. The feedback I was getting from people going around the event was amazing and many asked if this was happening again next year!" 

Shred Party was a one-off event organised by Coca Cola and the University of Portsmouth Students' Union costing hundreds of thousands of pounds to operate.

The charity is currently unable to immediately promise another event of it's kind, due to building works for the new sports centre reducing the use of Ravelin Park and difficulties in the economic climate making finding a sponsor more difficult. 

Deputy Chief Executive, Tom Worman, said the Students' Union will do 'all they can' to host another event like this for Portsmouth students in the future and promised ‘a great end of term event next year’
