Each year prominent women and men from many different traditions deliver Sermons on topics of particular interest to students. The services are very simple, last about an hour, and are open to all (from gsm.cam.ac.uk).

Delivering a fascinating insight into the musical world of Jane Austen, The Austen Trio perform a selection of music loved and played by Jane and her family. A detailed exploration of the Austen Family Music Books was undertaken by pianist Samantha Carrasco as part of her PhD research at the University of Southampton, leading to the development of the trio. Featuring solo items, duets, and songs; utilising family letters, historical documents and Jane’s own writing; the trio transports the listener to the heart of the Austen family drawing room. They perform works by Handel, Haydn, Dussek, Cramer and some lesser known composers of the time who were popular in England.
