Some people like to do creative things, like take photos and or paint and Bruce Hall caters for that. We have a Dark Room in Bottom Extension. Residents can develop their own film and print their own black and white photos. The key to the Dark Room is available from the Hall Administrator.
We also have an Art Room between East and South wings and several Music Rooms in Central Wing. Music students are also welcome to play the grand piano in the Dining Hall. Residents who regularly use these rooms may sign for a key from the Hall Administrator.
An Interhall Arts Shield competition is held each year. The Arts Shield calendar includes events such as debating, public speaking, chess, art competitions, theatre sports and a talent night. All residents are encouraged to get out and have a go, which is regarded as much more important than being an expert in the field. Residents are also encouraged to attend these events to offer support to those who are representing the Hall. This all pays off, not only in tremendous achievements, but it also plays a major part in promoting the Bruce Hall spirit.
