Why Join Us?


1) Creating a social space and organising events to meet other creative thinkers.

2) Boosting creativity through peer-to-peer learning and workshops.

3) Enjoy, watch, and discuss all things animation.

What Do We Do?


If you are an animation student or you're just interested in this amazing artform, we welcome you to join our society! The Animation Society is both academic and social - we try to create events for you where you can get academic advice, but we also want to build a community where you can find people with the same interests and make friends with them.


We will host events such as film nights, socials, arts and crafts as well as seasonally themed events! We also organise a Sunset Ball at the end of the year.

One of our aims is also to try and offer advice to students studying animation about their work.


How to Join Us?

With just £5, you can purchase an annual membership for our society!

This will cover the majority of the events (online and in person) for the entire academic year :D
