Around 2010 (the year I graduated), something changed. The elite, secret and invite-only drinking societies of Britain’s most prestigious universities were suddenly in the headlines more often than they were out of them. The Guardian
ran an opinion piece about them entitled "Port and Prejudice" and, particularly prompted by the 2014 release of the film The Riot Club
, which was based on Laura Wade’s play Posh
about a club resembling the 'Buller', the Daily Mail
went through a phase of printing blurry photos of Cambridge students in bikinis partaking in jelly wrestling at the infamous end-of-year party thrown by the university's most 'prestigious' gentlemen’s drinking club, Wyverns
, which has since been banned.
