Clubs and societies are a great way to meet other students in College, have fun, and take a break from Cambridge academic life.
Lucy Cavendish has a range of active clubs and societies, with something for everyone! If you’re interested in joining or have any questions, all society representatives would be delighted to hear from you. Most societies also have a Facebook page, where you can find out more and keep up to date with their latest events.
If you’d like to start your own society, feel free to contact the Lucy Cavendish Students’ Union. They can tell you more about how this works, and what funding may be available.
Learn about some of our current clubs and societies below. All University societies, along with contact details, can be found on the University of Cambridge societies register. Have a look; you may be surprised by what you find!
Lucy Cavendish Art Society
Lucy Art Society is a relaxed space to come and be creative! We hold fortnightly meetings each term on Monday evenings. Anyone is very welcome to come along, no previous experience required! All pencils, pens, pastels, paints etc provided. We also organise a couple of trips each year to local art galleries and museums, so do look out for these too! Keep up to date via our Facebook page for more information. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
Never played badminton before? Basically read to beat Lin Dan? Whichever one you are, come and join the Hughes-Lucy Cavendish Badminton Club! Playing badminton is good exercise and a great opportunity to meet other people from another college. We currently play once or twice a week at Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre - Thursdays from 9-10pm for £1.20 (entry fee to the centre). We also play in the College League against other colleges if you are interested, but there is no requirement! There is no obligation and no experience required. We provide all equipment needed.
The boat club is Lucy's most popular society, engaging one in ten of our student population! At the start of every Michaelmas term we recruit a fresh group of (usually) complete beginners, and pride ourselves on devoting special attention to bringing our novices up to a high standard of skill ready for next term - getting them fit and bonding together, making lifelong friends in the process. Lent and Easter terms bring the excitement of Cambridge's 'Bumps' races as well as rowing on the Thames in the Head of the River Race - all of which promise to be highlights of your Cambridge experience. Join the LCCBC Facebook page for updates.
We are a friendly all female student choir directed by Chloe Allison from Selwyn College. We welcome everyone who enjoys to sing, with and without previous choral experience. We sing a large variety of music: from classics to musicals to pop. Rehearsals are held once a week on Tuesday nights from 7.30 - 9 pm, and usually we have two concerts a term, including Lucy’s Carols Around the Tree Christmas concert in Michaelmas, a fun concert at Lucy’s Garden Party in Easter term and pre-formal hall concerts. Feel free to come to a rehearsal and see what you think! You can also join our facebook page (cavendishchorale), instagram (@cavendishchorale) and twitter (@CavChorale).
The Cavendish Chronicle is a termly print magazine from Lucy Cavendish College. It privileges the diversity of voices at our College as well as other creative minds from the University of Cambridge.

It also encourages creative writers and artists by giving them the chance to be published. You can find out more on our website.
The Lucy Cavendish Law Society aims to bring together all Lucy Law students and other college members interested in the law.
