The Hall welcomes families and guests of first year undergraduates
18 Feb 2019
Last week we welcomed 65 students and their guests to the Freshers Parents’ Dinner. It was a great opportunity for families and friends to see what life is like at the Hall and to taste some of the chef’s fantastic food. Our guests were able to hear the choir’s beautiful voices during Evensong, get to know fellow students and parents over drinks in the Jarvis Doctorow Hall, and meet Fellows and lecturers over a four-course dinner in the Wolfson Hall.
After dinner, guests heard from the Vice-Principal, Professor Robert Whittaker and Junior Common Room President, Emily Thwaites (2017, Geography), before heading off to the Buttery Bar.
Every year students’ families receive invitations to a range of events. This year please save the date for the following events:
- ‘Access Hall Areas’ – Friday 3 to Saturday 4 May 2019
- Parents’ Garden Party for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year undergraduates and postgraduates – Saturday 1 June 2019
