Merton Society Weekend

Date: Saturday 25 June 2022 - Sunday 26 June 2022
Time: All day
Merton College

After a pause of two years due to pandemic restrictions, it was hugely exciting be able to reinstate the Merton Society Weekend.

The weekend comprised of our traditional offering of tours, lectures, drinks receptions, lunch and formal dinner. This year we also held a much-delayed celebration of 40 Years of Women at Merton with a special lunch and a Merton Women through the Four Decades panel event, featuring eminent Mertonian women.
