Social and Cultural committee (SCC)
Social and Cultural Committee (SCC) allocates and approves money for all the College’s clubs, societies and social functions.
Its sub-committees encompass most of the life of the Wolfson community. SCC’s Sub-committees are: Ball, Bar Committee (BarCo), Entertainments (“Entz”), Arts, Music, Romulus, Sports, Families.
Provided you can draw up a credible budget and a good case for expenditure, practically any worthy endeavor can be supported by the Common Room Fund, which is overseen by the Social and Cultural Committee.
Every year, a committee of students is invited to organise a Christmas Ball on a theme of their choice, and a summer event to cater for the whole community. This is a great opportunity to get to know people and to work as a team to put together an exciting programme of entertainment.
The Cellar Bar and Games Room is run by a student committee known as 'Barco'. Learn more.

Due to the tireless work of musicologists such as Anna Beer, a rich legacy of music by women has been, and continues to be, unearthed. The tide is, however, beginning to turn and we are hearing more female composers. But how can we, indeed how should we, write these composers' lives? In the first Weinrebe Lecture of 2019, Anna will share her insights into gender, creativity and life-writing.Networking23 - 23Jan JanDigital Research Cluster LunchWednesday 23 January - 12:30pm to 1:30pm
