Fourth Week 2018

1st – 5th October is Fourth Week, Trinity’s dedicated Society Week.

All society events on the Fourth Week calendar are OPEN (you don’t have to be a member) and FREE of charge to all students and staff of TCD. It is an opportunity to experience the wealth of activity, enthusiasm, and creativity that our 126 societies have to offer without committing to join up.

Updates will be available on this site as well as on the CSC Facebook event and  TrinityCSC on Twitter  #GoFourth #FourthWeek.

The week will kick off with a Re-Freshers Fair in the Atrium

It is not necessary to be a member of a society to attend its Fourth Week event. However, if you like what you see you can sign up on the day and come back later in the year for more.
