The Social Committee organises a range of events throughout the year. The programme usually involves visits to interesting and educational venues and the committee also organises The Master's Weekend. They provide informal opportunities to get to know fellow members. Spaces are sometimes limited and if that is the case then a ballot us used to select participants.

Note that for 2017-18 the committee are running events at different times and days of the week to try and appeal to a wider audience of members. For instance the first event of the season is on a Sunday and other events may be in the evening.
