Michaelmas Term

Autumn Term

In the Autumn term we get ready to welcome the newest members of our Manor Hall community with our Wine & Welcome event down in the Bar, in recent years this has involved a quiz to help break the ice. All proceeds go to support the MHA Fund.

At the end of this term we all get into the festive spirit with our traditional service of Lessons and Carols, which sees man generations of Manorites comes together as well as parents and guests from the local community.

Lent Term

Spring Term

As everyone is now well settled into university life this term tends to be a bit quieter; however, due to popular demand we will be once again holding a Wine & Quiz night!

In February the Association invites a number of recent graduates back to talk to current residents about their career paths since leave the University. Wine and nibbles will be provided.

The Lent term is when the plans for our Annual Summer Ball get properly underway!

Easter Term

Summer Term

The Summer term is when examinations happen across most of the University and so the space and appetite for events is much reduced. Instead we focus all of our efforts on our fantastic Summer Ball that sees many residents, alumni and friends of the Hall come together to celebrate the achievements of that year's graduands and mark the end of the academic year

In June we also host our Annual General Meeting and will be involved in the Convocation Reunion Weekend in July

The Manor Hall Association is the alumni network for Manor Hall at the University of Bristol. We work to keep our members connected with the Hall and each other after they have left.
