The university’s notorious end-of-exams ‘Suicide Sunday’ party lived up to its reputation with a series of alcohol-fuelled garden parties across the city hosted by its drinking societies.
One female student had to be helped by a friend after she appeared to collapse unconscious at the side of a road outside Magdalene College’s ‘Gentlemen’s Wyverns’ event.
The drinking club was forced to relocate their party from college grounds for the first time in 80 years after a woman student was arrested for punching a spectator during 2008’s all-female jelly wrestling competition.
Hundreds of students were bussed to Anstey Hall, a restored 17th-century manor house five miles from the city centre.
Extra security and police were also drafted in this time to patrol the party, whilst other college celebrations were cancelled.
