Pi are in the quad! Come say hey!
We’re going to be attempting to ‘live-review’ the events throughout the day. Societies such as Musical Theatre, Comedy and Drama will be entertaining us with 20 minute performances in the quad.
We’re hoping to be super-2015 and livestream certain events through Meerkat, but that depends on the competence of our phones, and Eduroam.
This will be updated throughout the day with comments from various Pies as and when they stop by to say hey. Come say hey as well if you’re nearby!
That's the festival done. ❤️ you all and hope you enjoyed our completely unprofessional comments throughout the day.

Laptops died, people fled the Quad. It all got hectic at the end.
Helping to maintain the structural integrity of the stage was definitely not part of my remit for today.
The stage has collapsed so please can we go now?
They’re good songs, but I’m cold and just want my bed so I HATE ALL OF IT
Good call Oli.
Second song has a mic. S’all good.
You’re either a liar or a superhuman. I believe it’s the second.
I can hear every word
LUKE YOU CAN HEAR THE MUSIC.
Is that revolting children? We can hear it clearly from here Oli
WHY NO MICROPHONES URGH
Cheer interrupts board meeting
They’re FINALLY ready
We’ve broken out Tay Swift to cure the silence as MT set up.
Musical Theatre are warming up by jogging on the spot. Such cuties.
This is nice but very mellow for the very cold Pi team
He has a nice voice tho
They’re alright. A bit too melancholy for my liking.
Well we can just about hear the band from the trustee boardroom
This poor mans compère has once again stepped on stage when will we be rid of this man….
Live Music have started (25 minutes late but wevs)
WAIT THERE’S GUITAR I HEAR LIVE MUSIC
Lizzie Jay “this is the best”
I feel culture club needs legal counsel for all this libel
Lizzie jay – outgoing president of musical theatre – says: “#burnblackett”
AH. Someone tripped over a cable and the stage lost power for ten minutes. Emma Groome doesn’t think that was in the risk assessment.
This is hard on an ipad
Luke technotard Blackett showing why he’s Culture Club chairman below
Why are live music taking so long?
Would share a photo if I knew how
Live blogging from the stage here
Everyone act like nothing has happened #cuttingcutts
Reviewer on the ball
FINALLY LOGGED IN TO THE LIVE BLOG – WHAT??
Emma Groome is about to reveal the dogging area specified for today
Joyfully she now can’t log in to the live blog so we have revised to rating to half a star during her appeal for help
Izzy has forgotten how to log in to the website. Excellent start for our new VP.
As editor-in-chief I feel I ought to try and retain some form of professionalism. But this is too fun.
Touch typing is a new thing for izzy
Izzy struggling with the keyboard comeback to that last comment
Luke gets 1 star for his late appearance – Izzy Cutts
#cuttingcutts gets 3 and a half for her viral vine
George and Izzy on the Jazz band.
Jazz keeping it nice and chilled, although a weak compere by this replacement for someone who is constantly suffering from 3rd degree burns due to a Twitter hashtag
We now have Luke Blackett commenting. All hell is about to break loose.
The entirely non biased reviewer is here!
OMG IS THAT THE GUY FROM THE BELLO MUSIC VIDEO
We feel that the dad dancers should be a permanent part of this band
As well as the singer of Jazz society can sing, i’m more impressed by his refusal to wear a jumper in such arctic conditions…
There isn’t a foot not tapping, a hip not bopping in the Quad right now
I LOVE THIS SONG
Ilya on guitar for Jazz band, having a fret induced orgasm with every sweet lick and riff. He is truly a master of the solo face
Jazz Society kick it off with that touchstone jazzy classic “I Don’t Feel Like Dancing” by the Scissor Sisters – a genre confused delight
Jazz Society teasing us with appearing to start and then, just, sort of, not…
Pi gazebo still going strong as the information booth for both CC Festival and the Astrophysics School Conference
I’m learning all about contouring at the makeup tutorial #hellobeautifulface
‘I’m buzzing’ – Pi Arts Reviewer Izzy Cutts
WE’RE STILL HERE and Jazz are about to begin
Makeup are now doing tutorials in the cloisters. Pi are evacuating the quad to find shelter indoors.
Twelve Angry Men? More like Twelve Passive Aggressive Men
COME TO THE PI GAZEBO FOR SHELTER/MAGAZINES TO USE AS COVER
FUCK FUCK FUCK THE RAIN IS COMING DOWN NOW.
Twelve Angry Men from Drama is on now. Is this pathetic fallacy? #idon’tdoenglish
Bonner asks us to take our seats. We won’t be there long if the heavens open.
It’s raining. I repeat, it is raining.
While we wait, here’s Izzy Cutts’ response after I asked her what she thought of Comedy
I can hear strange noises coming from backstage. It must be drama.
The Graters being ‘pretty good’
<3 them really
(As much as it pains me to compliment the CG)
Tbf, the Graters are pretty good.
oooooh, a very fancy car just drove through the festival
Our review was conducted in a highly professional manner, as you can tell
The Graters are up next. Luckily they still have a stage to do stuff on.
Maybe they had had enough of Matt Bonner’s as MC
Brief panic as the blow-up stage nearly collapses, leaving us all a bit deflated – easily corrected by an unknown saviour.
10 minute break – Culture Club fact quiz coming our way!
Drama just finished to a big applause after a gripping monologue
Interarts success as Drama attracts a large crowd
Drama up next – apparently microphones are not a thing today
Half an hour of probably funny comedy done. I have no idea as I couldn’t hear.
The group of school children passing through the quad are LOVING IT
Popcorn disaster in the Pi gazebo
We’re sure it would be funny if we could hear it
Not sure why Sarah was just kicked off the stage but the drama is intense
They need microphones tbh
Comedy Club are currently on!
