Are you a musician, singer, debator or dancer?

There are many opportunities for you to express your talents by getting involved in the many clubs with like-minded Wesleyans…

Don’t forget you can also represent Wesley College in the intercollegiate Palladian Cup Competition, which is lively and competitive and showcases both individual and group performances.
