Guest Nights & Formal Hall

Guest Nights and Formal Halls are three-course meals, open to all members of College and Common Room. Both dinners can be booked using the Wolfson Gateway booking system. 

Guest Nights

Guest Night dinners are elaborate, served, formal dinners, with wines.  They take place on Thursdays during term time and are open to all members of College and Common Room. They provide a convivial atmosphere and the chance to meet other Wolfsonians as well as to entertain guests. Dress code is smart, though black tie is not required, and academic gowns are not worn.

Pre-dinner drinks are normally at 7.00 pm, followed by dinner at 7.30 pm.  However, please note that guest nights from 5th November 2018 to May 2019 will start slightly later, with drinks at 7.15pm and dinner at 7.45pm.

You can make a booking for yourself and your guests using your single-sign-on via the Wolfson Gateway, where you can also see each night’s menu. There is a limit of five guests in addition to yourself.  However, please note that guest nights from 5th November 2018 to May 2019 will be limited to three guests per member.
