Clare Christmas Fair hoped to celebrate all things Christmas with gifts, classic Christmas fair games, a buffet of food, and a wonderful atmosphere right in the heart of the college for all Clare students, ending the night with a student-run pantomime.
However, due to COVID-19, we’ve had to alter our plans for our first-ever celebration. This does not mean we’re giving up! We have a few tricks up our sleeves to make sure everyone has a safe Christmas celebration at the college; but rest assured, next year, we’re coming with a BANG!

A space for musicians of any standard to play music of any genre in a relaxed and informal setting. No need to give a refined or even a complete performance. If you don’t want to perform, free to just come along and listen. We have previously held a session every Sunday between 7pm and 10pm in the Bennett room, but this will be subject to changes due to Covid. We welcome anyone and everyone who enjoys making and listening to music.

Hi, I’m Claire and I run the poker club. It’s a pretty chill club with a wide range of poker abilities from complete beginner to scarily good but everyone is welcome! People tend to join whenever they feel like it, but we usually manage about 10-12 players per session.
Our sessions don’t involve any actual money, instead we play for leaderboard points with an optional cash game at the end of term. We hold weekly in person sessions where we play a few rounds with snacks and drinks provided. However, due to the pandemic we may have to move things online where we’ll be playing games on an online platform with a voice/video chat to keep the banter going.
If you have any questions or would like to join us then email me at the email below.
