Celebrating the Day of the Bulgarian Enlighteners 2015

For the 1st of November OUBS organised their traditional event in celebration of one of the most important holidays in Bulgaria - the Day of the Bulgarian Enlighteners. On this date Bulgarians remember those people who dedicated their life to develop and preserve the Bulgarian spirit throughout the years. This time we joined forces with the Bulgarian School in Oxford, whose founders kindly agreed to tell us its story.


Freshers' Drinks 2015

As is now a tradition, every year our society welcomes the new bulgarian students in the University of Oxford with an event early in Michaelmas Term. This year our Freshers' Drinks event took place on the 15th of October in Balliol College. 35 people turned up and about 10 of them were freshers. We welcomed the newcomers with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, wine and snacks.

Thanks to everyone who came: it was a great evening! We hope you also enjoyed the event and we'll be really happy to see you all on other gatherings of OUBS!

The Three Events


Oxford University Bulgarian Society is now officially establishing a campaign of organizing talks and discussions on topics of History, Culture, and Politics once per term, making a total of three events per academic year. What will come to be known as OUBS's Three Events will take place each year around November 1 in Michaelmas, March 1 in Hilary, and May 24 in Trinity. Each of the counterparts will be an opportunity for members of the Society to engage in conversation on these meaningful topics, to share, discuss, and come up with valuable ideas.

The beginning of what will hopefully become a tradition was set up with the celebration of May 24 in TT'12. The next event to look forward to is the celebration of November 1.
