As we all know, no-one enjoys the craic more than the Irish! And there's plenty of it to be had at Harper. A couple of key events are:

Harper Ireland dinner

The Harper Ireland dinner is an annual event hosted by Harper Adams University. It happens every February and is open to Irish students past and present. This popular event is organised by the Harper Ireland student association, and is a chance to celebrate the achievements of the previous year and to look ahead, welcoming the new Harper Ireland committee.

The dinner includes guest speakers and award and scholarship presentations:

  • Victor Truesdate award
  • Presidents Cup
  • Chairman's Cup

Paddy's Ball

The Paddy's Ball is a black tie event organised by the Harper Ireland committee and is now a much anticipated date for the entire university. It is hosted in a large marquee on campus every March and is open to the entire current student body. This is a great fund raising event for the Harper Ireland committee.

Previous events have included fairground rides, DJs and live music.
