The Classics Society

The Classics Society is a student-run society that aims at promoting all things classical!

We arrange events which celebrate Classical civilisation, literature, art and thought, including guest lectures on topics that appeal to the interests of society members. These often connect with other subjects such as philosophy, history, sociology and languages, making them all the more interesting for students.‌ See the noticeboard on the Classics home page for notices of upcoming events. All are welcome at the Society's guest speaker events, which where possible include a reception after the lecture. 

The annual Classics Society Trip is both fun and of academic value to its members, particularly to those studying Classics as part of their degree.

Other social events have included public and private readings of Classical literature, toga parties and free movie nights showing Classically themed films (e.g. Gladiator, 300).
