Societies Week (aka Fourth Week) is an annual week of cool and exciting events. It’s a great opportunity for the societies on campus to shine and show students everything they have to offer. All events are free, allowing students to experience different societies that they may have missed the chance to join during Freshers’ Week. Events held during Fourth Week don’t require membership, and so students are urged to broaden their horizons, step out of their comfort zone and try something new.
Despite a host of great events scheduled, Trinity will be closed today because of storm Ophelia.
DU Music Society’s Silent Movie Fourth Week event will make a triumphant return at 7.30pm in the Chapel with a screening of Phantom at the Opera.

DU Music promise an “unbeatable atmosphere” in the College Chapel as the live music beautifully accompanies the movie.
Following the success of their first Open Jam event at the end of Freshers’ Week, Trinity Jazz Soc will be holding their second Open Jam night this Tuesday at 8pm in Workmans.
