What is Ents Crew?

Ents Crew powers Union events. We are all student volunteers, most with no previous experience. If you've ever thought a Union event looked cool, that was us. From lights and sound to projections and power, we handle tech for student events.

What we do

We help the Director of Events and Services to organise Union events, like Freshers' Week. We take their event ideas, and make them happen.

This includes technical elements: lighting, sound engineering, projections, and DJs. We also handle decoration. Inflatable fish, 1,200ft of ribbon, 3,000 balloons: we've been there.

However, the bulk of our schedule involves supporting events organised by the 150+ student societies. If you're a society interested in holding an event, but require technical support, check how to book a space or contact the Ents Convenor via ents@.

Get involved

You don't need any experience. Even if you've never changed a lightbulb, we'll show you what to do. We don't expect you to learn everything in a few hours, but at the same time we won't make you wait long before you get to do something interesting.

We have regular training sessions for lighting, sound, and DJs. Find out more on our Facebook page.

What's the commitment?

Just because you come and learn how to rig a light, it doesn't mean you have to commit to anything. You can always do as much or as little as you want. We're volunteers, and we do Ents because we enjoy it. We're all students aiming to get our degrees, so we like to have a laugh and enjoy ourselves while putting together events.


If you have any questions, email us via ents@, or find us on Facebook. We normally run a weekly meeting every Wednesday.

If you're putting on event, you'll need to come to our users' meeting. We'll help you plan your event. This is so you can tell us what you'd like from us, and we can say what we need from you.
