THe-news: Lent Term 2016/17

Walking across Front Court

New Year, new look

Welcome to the new-look THe-news. More of a refresh than a redesign, we’ve spruced up for 2017 and hope you like it. It’s going to be busy at College this year with all the usual favourites and a fabulous line-up of special projects and events to mark 40 years of women at Trinity Hall.

We hope to see you soon!
