Garden party tickets have sold out in record time! See you at the party!
Firstly, sincere apologies for the difficulties in getting tickets for the 2012 Cambridge Union Garden Party -- our website crashed under the volume of requests. We will now return to the tried-and-tested method of selling them physically at the Union Office TOMORROW (Friday 18th) at 2pm. First come, first served, until they sell out.
Please bring Union membership cards with you. You are allowed to buy tickets for a Member friend if you bring his or her card with you. Each Member is allowed to buy up to three non-Member guest-tickets.
The event costs £17 for Members and £22 for their Guests - that covers an entire afternoon of food, music and drink. We're sparing no expense.

In the summer of 2011, thousands of young people rioted on the streets of England's major cities. Many young people seem disillusioned with politics. We ask if the blame for these problems lies with the government in our latest debate video: "This House Believes the Government has failed Britain's Youth".
