On Tuesday 2 July 2019, DPAG staff and students made their way to Merton College for the Department's annual Garden Party. 

Each year, the Garden Party offers a chance to build a sense of togetherness within the Department and a perfect opportunity to network in a relaxed setting. Many members of the Professional Services team, Postdoctoral Society, senior academics, and researchers and graduate students from a wide range of research groups came out to socialise and enjoy the sunshine, and several staff members brought their families along for the occasion.

Attendees were treated to champagne, strawberries and cream, and even some party games. Both staff and children enjoyed playing giant Jenga and Quoits late into the afternoon.
