Hatfield has a varied, full and thriving social calendar, with something for everyone to enjoy! Our bar is the perfect space for anyone to relax and spend time with their friends, whether they're going out into Durham afterwards, or heading back to work. All of our clubs and societies have a great social side to them too with most clubs having a dedicated social secretary to organise an entertaining events calendar specific to that club.
On top of that, there are our regular formals, a ready-made social for anyone who comes along. Having a meal with friends, and making some new ones along the way, is one of the most sociable things we do!
The JCR runs many social events throughout the year, right from those first nights in Freshers' Week to regular formals to the Michaelmas Ball. Some larger events which are run throughout the year include the Lion in Winter Ball and the post-exams celebration called Hatfield Day.
What cannot be denied is that Hatfield has a fantastic blend of big and small events, with regular occasions supplemented by different events a couple of times per term. Your social life is here, ready-made and waiting for you to come and enjoy! Keep checking the events calendar so you don't miss out.
JCR run social events are headed up by the JCR Events Officer, Lucy Pallent, and her team of Ents Reps. If you have an idea for a new event, she would love to hear from you - we are always looking for ways to improve the events and facilities on offer.
The Bar: If you have any suggestions for ways that the bar could be improved, we would love to hear from you! The JCR have input into the way the bar is run and as it is your space, we want to make sure it is as good as it can be for everyone. Please contact our JCR Facilities Officer, Jonathan Leung, with any feedback or suggestions.
Some of the bigger events in college - for instance Lumley Castle Ball and Sessions - are organised by specific teams of people from within the JCR. If organising and preparing socials and events is your thing, keep an eye on your weekly emails about upcoming events and people we're looking for to make them happen.
