Kick start your social life! IVC is a vibrant club where there's always something happening in the club... from bridge to badminton, pubs to parties, curries to club night.

Club night is great for meeting old and new friends, for discussing what's coming up, and for finding out all the latest hot gossip!

Our monthly bulletin is always brimming with Interest, Variety and Culture so you can try new things, make new friends and kick-start your social life.

There are certain events that happen each week. We meet every Tuesday in The Castle Inn, 38 Castle St Cambridge CB3 0AJ, from 8.30pm for our club night. Each Friday we play Badminton, normally at Netherhall School and there are weekly Bridge sessions.


The members of the club put on a wide range of activities. These might range from meeting up with a few other members for a drink in a local pub, going to the theatre or music events, walks in the country, BBQs and Parties. Really anything goes.


The committee arrange some major events which are held during the year. These are a chance to "get your glad rags on". There is normally a Summer Party/BBQ and a Christmas Party with dancing, sometimes held in one of the colleges.
