On the 3rd of March was the first official Reunion of the Cross-CDT Cohort 2016/17 after the winter break. For this occasion, 15 CDT students from 3 different CDT programmes (CDT Neurotechnology, CDT HiPEDs, CDT Mathematics of Planet Earth) came together to experience an enjoyable night at the famous Karaoke Bar “The Star of Kings” close to St. Pancras Station.
The evening started with a cosy dinner where everyone could catch up what has happened for each of the different PhD students after they have successfully finished their MRes in autumn the year before. After everyone was finished with eating their dinner-burgers or chips, the time had come to prove musicality by at the Karaoke machine. Throughout the night several different music genres were explored. Songs like “500 miles” from The Proclaimers, “Slim Shady” from Eminem and “Let it go” from the Movie Frozen were not missing in the repertoire of their passionate karaoke performance.
After 3 hours of extensive singing, “The Star of Kings” bar offered a free professional performance of the famous Drag-Queen Westend musical performer (“Everybody’s Talking About Jamie”) where everyone was able to admire an unforgettable show performance.
A special thanks goes to the Graduate School of Imperial College London which financially supported this cohort building activity.
