    Bring a Student Union Bar/Club to Falmouth

      Falmouth's nightlife is under threat, with one of it's most popular clubs recently closing and another being placed on the market. The lack of affordable reliable venues along with the rising number of students will leave current bars/clubs overcrowded, and give students few options in terms of nightlife. This could help to deter potential future students. Placing a FXU bar/club (much like the Stannary) in Falmouth would offer those who don't live in Penryn a reliable, affordable venue.

    11:06pm on 9 Nov 16 This is perhaps one of the slightly more long term Make A Change ideas I was assigned. FXU are very aware of the lack of satisfaction with nights out currently and do all we can (potentially more then is visible) to encourage more events both on and off campus. I have not yet managed to open a bar/night club in town though and FXU currently aren't in the position to open one in town.
