Put the kettle on is a place to explore new and varying hot drinks, from flowering teas and exotic coffees to chai lattes and other cultural cuppa’s, whilst encouraging and building a friendly environment of support, chatter and fun.

Come for the tea, stay for the people!

But what does a Hot drinks society get up to? 

Well, our regular sessions on campus will have a rotating beverage of the day, where we will try a new hot drink. If that's not to your liking, we'll also offer Tea, Coffee or Hot chocolate to suit. We aim to also bring along a variety of snacks, from biscuits and cookies to cake and crackers, and we do our best to cater to any dietary requirements you may have! All hot drinks and food at these sessions are covered in the membership fee!

We also plan to explore new and interesting cafes and bakeries around Birmingham and carry out various excursions regularly and carry out other interesting events like Paint-A-Pot, Cat Cafe Visits, Afternoon tea or other charity fundraisers.

We have three goals for this coming year: 

  1. Raise £250 for Foodbanks in the Birmingham area to ensure everyone can have a cup of tea and a biscuit when they need it.
  2. Run monthly *(In Term Time*) Events called “A cup and a chat”  raising awareness about mental health and wellbeing.
  3. By the end of the 2021/22 academic year, we hope to have achieved a total of 25 active members attending meetings and imputing into the life of the kettle.
