The wide range of Josephine Butler societies gives you loads of great ways to get involved with College and meet new people, whatever your interests. Even though we are the youngest College, we have a really broad array of societies on offer. These include the following societies: Allotment / American TV / Butler Live / Butler Show Choir / Casual Book Club / Chess / Chocolate / Choir / Christian Union / Cider Appreciation / Cocktail / Comedy / Cooking / Croquet / Cycling /Dance / Disney / Dodgeball / Film / Filmmaking / Gaming / Golf / Guinness, Real Ale and Whisky Appreciation / Harry Potter / Hiking / Jogging / Mooting / Music / Photography / Pudding / Rock and Alternative Music / Singstar / Society of Theatrical Arts at Butler / Table Top Games / Wine Appreciation.
The College is always open to new suggestions, so if you have interests that aren't represented then it's really easy to set up a new society with the help of your College officers.
Josephine Butler has several thriving music societies that you can join, whatever you play and whatever style of music you enjoy. We have a jazz band, an a capella group, a choir and a rock/alternative music society.
Drama and Musical Theatre
Our theatrical arts group, Society of Theatrical Arts at Josephine Butler (STAB), is very popular, putting on performances throughout the academic year. Past performances include appearances at our annual murder mystery formal dinner.
Cooking Society and Pudding Society
Being self-catered, Josephine Butler uniquely has the facilities for two of our thriving societies. Both our Cooking Society and Pudding Society are opportunities to develop culinary talents or to indulge a sweet tooth! Whether through attending the weekly sessions or producing biscuits and cakes for charity events, they are a great opportunity to make friends and get involved with college life.
Josephine Butler is well-known for the high quality, professional posters and publicity produced for college events by our own Publicity Committee - made up entirely of students. Utilising a top-of-the-range Mac Pro, becoming a member of 'PubCom' allows you to let your creative side out, as well as developing valuable skills and seeing your work displayed around college.
