Christmas Events

The Fitz Events team were extremely helpful, approachable and efficient and it was useful to be met by them to answer any questions when I arrived. The drinks reception and dinner flowed well, and the disco was great fun. The night ran smoothly thanks to the expert coordination of the catering team.Jennie Nelson, Department of Physics
