Friday is approaching fast and heralds the end of term party upstairs at Turl Street Kitchen. It all kicks off at 7:45, with canapés and drinks from the piano bar available. Dress code is semi-formal, i.e. jacket & tie for gents and the equivalent for ladies.
We’ve reached TSK’s capacity in the upstairs function room, so the sign-up is now closed and unfortunately attendance is limited to those already on the list.
All the best & I look forward to seeing you on Friday.
Many MCR members are involved in this production – come along!
The Importance of Being Earnest – 8.15pm Monday 10th, Tuesday 11th March, Jesus Chapel
‘My dear fellow, the truth isn’t quite the sort of thing one tells to a nice, sweet, refined girl…’
Billed as ‘A Trivial Comedy for Serious People’, Wilde’s play manages to combine romance, wit, and a serious case of false identity into one of the most astonishing, hilarious, and quintessentially English plays of all time. In 8th Week, members of Jesus College will perform this classic comedy in the stately setting of the Jesus College Chapel, with live musical accompaniment.
Monday 10 March 8:15pm
Tuesday 11 March 8:15pm
No admission cost – this event is open to members of Jesus College and friends. Turn up early to secure a good seat!
After a successful second event, we are pleased to announce that the next International Food Night will be held on Tuesday, 11th March, and will feature American (USA) cuisine.
The International Food Night series is intended to celebrate the variety of international fare the members of our community bring with them from their home countries. The dinners, held twice per term, showcase a different country’s regional dishes over the course of that evening.
As 1st Hall will remain in its usual format, we strongly encourage you to attend 2nd Hall to fully experience the evening. The Principal will be speaking briefly – alongside members of the JCR and MCR – to describe the dishes on offer and explain their cultural significance (apart from what you’ve seen in the movies). Sign up for 2nd Hall on this night is now open on the Jesus intranet, so please register soon if you wish to attend (£5.90 for members and £10 per guest / family style service).
Debbie (our Head Chef) is especially interested in incorporating “home” recipes from students and fellows into the evening’s menu. If you have any recipes for starters, main courses or puddings for the upcoming theme, please send them to her by 25th February with the subject line “International Dinner – USA.”
A further International Food Night will be held this upcoming Tuesday, May 6th, and will feature Brazilian/Portuguese cuisine. Recipes will be requested closer to the date.
Members of the JCR, MCR and SCR are all invited to this informative celebration of international cuisine.
We look forward to your joining us!
Jesus MCR in no way endorses communism and it’s organisation has definitely no parallels to infamous tyrannies.

“ I wanted this to be professional, efficient, adult, cooperative. Not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way… so he won’t be joining us for the rest of his life. We can go any way you want it. You can walk out of here or be carried out. But have no illusions. We are in charge. So, decide now, each of you. And please remember: we have left nothing to chance. ” Hans Gruber, Die Hard
