invite you to say goodbye to term and raise a drink with us at the Museum of Classical Archaeology for a joint celebration: a first-time-ever student show in our Cast Gallery AND the relaunch of the Cambridge University Classics Society. What more could you want?

Well, maybe... 

  • lightning talks and behind-the-scenes reveals from the student-artists
  • a chance to sculpt a classical body out of plasticine
  • an opportunity to socialise with friends in a unique and atmospheric environment
  • sign up to join MOCA Soc, Classics Soc and the Fitzwilliam Museum Society


This is event is co-hosted with MOCA Soc and the new Classics Society. There will be pre-event registration drinks in room R01 in the Classics Faculty at 6pm for those who would like to join the Classics Society.

Follow us all on social media @moca_society, @camclassicssoc, @fitzmuseum_soc and @classarch.cambridge.
