The Lounge is pleased to host a Thanksgiving celebration, brought to you by Bristol SU’s USA Society! Join us for games, free dinner – including traditional Thanksgiving foods, and a brief history of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that many people around the world will have heard of – due to the ubiquity of American culture – yet if you’re not from the U.S, you probably don’t know much about its history. Come along and we guarantee you’ll learn something new and interesting about this well-known holiday!

The USA Society will be sharing a brief history of this annual celebration, with lots of American-themed games and activities for you to get involved in, plus an array of delicious (free) traditional foods for you to try, including turkey with cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie – yum!
