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 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 entertaining guests. Dress code is smart, no gowns.

You can make a booking for yourself and your guests using your single-sign-on via the Wolfson Gateway where you can see each night’s menu. There is a limit of five guests in addition to yourself.
