About

Members’ participation helps us to support projects which enhance hall life such as the staging, a portrait of Professor Phyllida Parsloe, a previous Warden, and more recently the chapel organ, the eightieth anniversary commemorative plaque, a new sound system in the dining hall and the refurbishment of the bar. As part of our relationship with the Warden and students we value members’ involvement in giving advice and support to students and young graduates. The Association through the Memorial Fund and Zutshi-Smith Funds provides student travel grants. We keep in touch with Hall life by meeting twice a year with members of the JCR Committee. Every summer in July we hold a reunion and many former members of Hall return to Bristol. This runs concurrently with the Convocation weekend. This is an opportunity for members and others to stay once again in Wills Hall at a very reasonable charge. After a drinks reception we enjoy a black tie dinner in the dining hall and speech from a guest of honour. The Association reunion dinner is open to all students and graduates of the university and their guests. A reception is held in Bristol in early spring and in London in the Autumn for members and their guests. We publish an end of year bulletin and a rather more weighty Yearbook the following April which includes articles from students themselves.
