De Wafel Food Truck

If you see a vintage caravan on campus this week, don’t freak out – it’s not a pair of grey-nomad hippy invaders, but rather a food truck selling fresh waffles smothered in caramelised sugar and other toppings of your choice. Look out for the attractive Belgian dude behind the counter. (Damn, there’s that saliva again).

Story Club at Giant Dwarf

Grab a drink and gather around the metaphorical fireplace at the Story Club at Giant Dwarf. It’s kind like Humans of New York, but in real life! Poets, peasants and premiers have all shared their stories at the monthly themed get togethers. The theme of this month’s gathering is ‘Learnt the Hard Way’. Haven’t we all?
