Mixed Messes provide an opportunity to engage one to one or in small groups with Members of Hall.

This evening begins with a drinks reception where you can meet and later dine in groups of four (a mess) with barrister and judicial members of the Inn. Dinner is preceded by a talk given by a guest of the Treasurer.

October’s Mixed Mess talk will be delivered by Professor Elizabeth Treasure on ‘What does a Vice-Chancellor do and is it possible in the 21st century?’
