Social Events at St Anne’s

Regular Events

Our lovely Social Secretaries ( organize a number of events each term, among which:

Exchange Dinners

2-3 x per term

Over the course of each term, the MCR organizes three exchange dinners where we invite another MCR to a formal hall at St. Anne’s and we visit their college for one of their formal dinners. We serve sparkling wine in the EPH common room prior to going to dinner and retire there for port after dinner. There are usually 10-15 places for MCR members at these dinners and guests are unfortunately not permitted. Details about signing up and paying will be sent out by the social secretaries well in advance of each event.

MCR Dinner

Twice a term, around 7:00 pm, Upper Common Room (UCR)

These dinners are a luxurious affair. About 25 students gather and dine in the Upper Common Room (UCR) with tickets costing £23.00 apiece. Dinner involves pre-dinner sparkling wine or orange juice in the Lower Common Room (LCR), a 3-course meal with a different wine for each course, and port, chocolates, and coffee after dinner.

Murder Mystery Dinners

Once a term, around 6:30 pm, Upper Common Room (UCR)

Each term, the MCR organizes a whole evening, including a 3-course meal and various drinks, dedicated to one question: who’s the murderer?! You’ll be assigned a role beforehand, you will dress up accordingly, act as your character and receive new hints throughout the evening. At the end, you must decide who the murderer is. This decision is usually discussed extensively afterwards in the college bar.

Board Games Night

A few times a term and on request

A few times a term, the MCR invites you to play board games (classic board games, puzzles, doodles) in the EPH common room, usually with snacks and drinks.

Movie Nights

A few times a term and on request, 8:00 pm

We gather a few times a term in the EPH common room or the study room to watch a good movie in even greater company.

Pub Crawls and College Bar Crawls

A few times a term and in Fresher’s Week

A few times a year, the MCR organizes a pub or college bar crawl, during which we visit several pubs or colleges in one evening.

Wine and Cheese

Tastings a few times a term, EPH Common Room

A few times per term, the MCR organizes one of Oxford’s typical Wine and Cheese nights. In the past, we’ve also held a number of other “tastings” events including beer, chocolate and gin tastings.

Start and End of Term Parties

Twice a term, 8:00 pm, EPH Common Room

Every term starts and end with a legendary party in the EPH common room. They usually start around 8:00 pm, with a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and end with a journey to a nearby club in the city centre.


Once a term, Saturdays 9:00 pm (*Big Open Parties)

BOPs are themed parties with cheap drinks hosted by various colleges. One is organized on-site each term, and your social secs sometimes manage to get you tickets to other college’s BOPs at a discounted price.
