Sci-Fi and Fantasy Society (IFIS)

We’re Royal Holloway’s Sci-fi and Fantasy Society! (Formerly known as IFIS: Institute for Impure Science).

We’re a friendly bunch of people who get together to enjoy events revolving around Sci-Fi, Fantasy and similar themes. We have a range of fun activities throughout the year including film screenings, DnD sessions and pub socials! We also take ideas for new events so if you’ve got an idea for a social or trip out, let us know! Whether you’re a Marvel or DC fanatic, Trekkie or Whovian, Hobbit or Wizard, or you just watch the occasional movie; come on down to one of our many gatherings!
