We are a group, open to both to students and external members, which is dedicated to the Gothic subculture and its components, such as fashion, history, art, aesthetic, etc. We also have a book club subset dedicated to Gothic Literature. We hold social meetings, film nights, arrange trips and fund-raise for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.


Please note, this society is currently at risk of closing, please do not pay membershipd at this time but please get in touch if you want to get involved



Until summer 2016, the Alternative society was known as the Gothic society

Please note, this group is unfortunately in the process of closing down (November 2016)






To ensure that you get what you need from us, when you need it, we have created a set of promises which we will always aim to deliver.
