Carols in the Quad 2022

On 1 December, building on the huge success of last year’s event, Main Quad was once again filled with both flickering candlelight and the sound of singing for Carols in the Quad 2022.

The Chapel Choir and the Univ Community Choir were joined by choirs, parents, carers and staff from Church Cowley St James Church of England Primary School, East Oxford Primary School,, St Barnabas Church of England Primary School and St Philip and St James’ Church of England Primary School. Unfortunately three other schools had last minute illness worries and had to pull out.

Hot chocolate, mulled wine and mince pies were on hand thanks to the efforts of our Domestic Bursary, and all the children (and some of the adults!) had glow-stick bracelets to add to the festive cheer.

Giles Underwood, our Director of Music and organizer once again of Carols in the Quad said: “ It’s just so wonderful to be able to open our doors and welcome people from the City to the College. And for us all to join in with some community singing makes it all the more worthwhile.”

Our thanks to all those who helped make this magical event possible; we look forward to seeing everyone again next year. We hope you enjoy this small selection of photos from our Carols in Quad:
