Welcome to the Mexican Culture Society!

The Mexican Culture Society (MexSoc) of the University of Bristol aims to:

Before COVID, we ran activities during both teaching blocks with emphasis on relevant dates for Mexican history and traditions. Among those activities we hosted:

  • Karaoke nights at the Balloon Bar
  • Kermés Mexicana
  • The Mexican Day of the Dead
  • Posada (Mexican Party for Christmas!)
  • Film nights
  • Spanish Conversation Clubs

Currently, we are working on delivering content and organising more virtual activities that could be of interest for the student community and beyond! Whether you're interested in culture, history, traditions, food, or even just meet up with the members of the society, we're making efforts on bringing this to you in a safe yet enjoyable way!
