Clubs and Societies

Clubs and societies are a great way to get to meet other students in College and provide a brilliant opportunity to take a well needed break from busy Cambridge life. Lucy Cavendish has many active clubs and societies and hopefully something to cater for all interests and tastes. All of the society representatives will be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in joining or have any questions. The full range of Cambridge societies, along with contact details, can be found here – you might be surprised at what you find!

If you can't see a club that interests you, check out our frequently asked questions on how to start a new one. If you're missing your own society on this page, please contact us so we can set up your information here.

The society was set up in November 2016 to create and cultivate a vibrant art community at Lucy Cavendish College, through fun and friendly painting, craft sessions and trips to exhibitions. We hope to provide more opportunities for College members to be involved in creative activities; just what you need to make you feel happy and relaxed.

Cavendish chronicle

‘In many ways, the Cavendish Chronicle has encouraged Lucy Cavendish students and staff to pick up the pen, to dare get splattered with ink, to fasten ideas and thoughts onto paper, thereby immortalizing our presence at Lucy Cavendish. Often, these records echo the whole spectrum of experiences: from endless meals at Warburton, countless captivating talks and their associated insights, all the way down to ever-present hilarious chats... Read more
