birmingham

On Thursday the 21st of September, the streets of England’s second largest city were once again the stage for one of the most anticipated pub crawls in the country. Freshman medical students from the University of Birmingham traditionally went out wearing masks for the annual Medsoc fancy dress bar crawl on Broad Street.

The event called ‘The Hop’, which sees up to 2,000 students hop between the many bars and pubs in Birmingham city center wearing masks such as North Korean, Duracell Bunnies and McDonald’s costumes and also involved the interventions of paramedics and police officers as the night went on.

The event’s Facebook page reads: “The Hop’ is back and it’s as exciting as ever: a fabulous tour visiting two of Birmingham’s biggest and best clubs.”

“Freshers, grab your free t-shirts and seize your chance to mingle with the crème de la crème of MedSoc fancy dress. From the Loch Ness Monster to the Spice Girls or Oompa Loompas our older years will show you a devastating display of costume creativity and finesse. We really go all out for this one!”

Kicking off at 8 pm local time, the pub crawl went on until the early hours of the morning, with many students struggling to keep up with the party as the night went on. Some were pictured slumped on the pavements speaking to police officers and being wheeled into the back of ambulance vehicles.

The University of Birmingham’s medical society organizes nights out, sporting events and holidays abroad for those staying for seven years to complete their medical degrees, as do most similar societies across the United Kingdom.
