Hatfield College

Arts & Music


An exciting addition to the Arts in College is the Hatfield Art Room. The Art Room is much used by the Hatfield Art Society as well as other active student groups such as the Lion in Winter Ball Decorations' Committee and other creative teams. The space is also used to host talks from visiting artists who are able to use it to show examples of their work.


Hatfield has its own student theatre company - the Lion Theatre Company (LTC). It puts on performances that make use of the wide spectrum of talent within the College. Productions include Hatfield-only plays, as well as shows that bring in performers from throughout the University, with shows ranging from musical theatre and comedy to 24-hour plays.


Hatfield has a wide range of music groups offering the opportunity for students at all levels to participate:
