"Thank you and your colleagues for all your help in making Cambridge Music Festival event such a success. Everything went very smoothly - from booking, to electrics, sound, interval drinks. As I said last time, it is wonderful that, in Fitzwilliam, we have a college that is so easy to work with and helps to make things work. Please pass on my appreciation to all involved." Cambridge Music Festival - Concert, 2023


"Thanks for organising the party so beautifully. Everybody really enjoyed themselves! Also please thank the College catering staff. All the visitors were impressed by their efficiency and great friendliness." Peter Dickens (former Fitzwilliam College Fellow and Director of Studies in Architecture and Sociology) - Book Launch Event, 2023


"I just wanted to write to say how pleased I was with all the arrangements put in place by you and your colleagues for the Cambridge Music Festival event (2 Pianos / 8 Hands) in the Auditorium. Alex was fantastic in his sound / lighting help. What the artists wanted was a little more involved than I was expecting and Alex took it all in his stride (not to mention helping me connect our credit card machine). Similarly, the staff who looked after the interval drinks were excellent too. I hire a lot of venues around Cambridge for a range of musical and other social events and I can honestly say that I do not know of another college/venue that would have been able to host this event so well - the quality of the setting, the ability to bring in and tune pianos, the support with sound/lighting, and the space and facilities to provide drinks was perfect. Please pass on my thanks to everyone." Cambridge Music Festival - Concert, 2022


"I stayed at your college for five nights, while I attended the Biomagnetic Pair Therapy Course. I am writing to say how much I enjoyed spending time in your college. The room was clean and comfortable. The outside spaces were lovely to walk in and enjoy. The restaurant was excellent, the food of a very high standard and the staff were a delight to meet. The lunches and refreshments during the course were also very good. The venue itself as a teaching environment was spacious, light and comfortable. The portering staff were a credit to the college, welcoming, helpful and efficient and again, a pleasure to meet." Janice Scott - Five Day Meeting, 2021


“I just wanted to say how pleased we were with everything at Fitzwilliam College over the weekend. Everything was really well organised and our guests enjoyed the food, their rooms and the beautiful grounds. They all want to study at Cambridge now! We did have a few problems with the computer/projection/sound but a member of Fitz Events team fixed it for us in time for our second day.” Angela Kirk (Balik Arts) – Residential Meeting, 2021

“Once a year, our Education & Training Committee needs a day without pressure of time in order to discuss the Inn’s strategic plan. We have found that Fitz provides the perfect setting for an Away Day. The Trust Room is quiet, light and very comfortable - conducive to a considered exchange of views. The refreshments are just right, the service is friendly and unobtrusive, and we are altogether well looked after. We have used this facility for three years now and plan to continue to do so.” – Christa Richmond (Middle Temple) - Away Day, 2019

“Our winter school group enjoyed their stay in Fitzwilliam College this January. Students received warm welcome on their first arrival and were showed around the beautiful college which was very much appreciated. The signage was clearly indicated. Our winter courses went on smoothly in the spacious and modern classroom. College staff were very friendly and helpful. Many thanks to the conference and events team!” – Shaoqin Zhang (First UK Education & Tourism) - Winter School, 2019

“I had a wonderful experience with Fitzwilliam College, no criticism comes to mind. The College Staff in particular was extremely kind and professional, and also very accommodating when we had to change the number of participants for the meals at a very short notice.” - Irene Wieczorek (University of Cambridge) - Seminar, 2019

“The Old Leicestrians (alumni of the School) held their first ever Oxbridge Dinner at Fitzwilliam College on Saturday 9th February 2019. The tables were beautifully presented and the staff went about their business professionally and discretely. The quality of the food was appreciated by all. Next year we will be seeking a college venue in Oxford, but Fitzwilliam set a very good standard for our first ever Oxbridge Dinner and we are grateful for the efforts of all who made it a success.” – Ron Berry (Leicester Grammar School) - Private Dinner, 2019


“Hilary and I want to say a huge' thank you' to all of you who helped in any way to make Jenny's wedding on Saturday as near to perfection as you can get. It makes me really proud to belong to Fitz when I see us all come together to manage such an occasion, especially when we had another big event on in college at the same time.

Graham, Cat and Anna made the service a delight. Rob's team managed the reception and following festivities superbly. The porters did a great job in managing the parking and fielding inquiries from guests. The gardens were a delight, and were remarked upon by many of our guests.” Ken Platts - Wedding, 2019
