Family Supper is one of the activities that make Clare Hall unique amongst Cambridge Colleges. It offers an opportunity for the Fellows and students to gather with their families for an enjoyable evening.
Usually, the evening takes place on the first Friday of the month from 5.30 pm, with an activity for the children followed by supper and a film viewing. During the film viewing parents are welcome to meet for a glass of wine in the Common Room. It is an excellent opportunity for families at Clare Hall to socialise and is a relaxing way to end the week.
Check the College Calendar or the weekly Events Bulletin for this term’s dates.
We always welcome volunteers to help organise activities for the first half-hour and to help with clearing up at the end of the evening. If you could help, even occasionally, please contact Dr Jenny Bangham email@example.com
Open to any member of Clare Hall, as well as certain other individuals approved by the college. For more information on becoming a member, contact our Porter’s Lodge. Members of Clare College need to apply to the Domestic Bursar for special permission.
Children’s swimming lessons are held each Saturday afternoon in the Clare Hall swimming pool for children of Clare Hall members and Clare College Fellows. Registered pool users who have taken out family membership of the pool are eligible for their children to participate in these lessons.
