Christmas Dining Hall


Celebrate Christmas in style with a party at Fitzwilliam College. Start the festivities with a glass of mulled wine, followed by great food, with mince pies and coffee to finish. We have plenty of space for a dance floor if you wish to dance the night away, you can add your own touches by hiring a live band or your own entertainment or we can arrange a disco for you at an additional cost.

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
