With dining rooms in a range of sizes and styles, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge allows you to choose a room for your Christmas party which really suits your group; from intimate, low-lit fine dining to a disco, bar and dinner all in one spectacular room.
Christmas Package and Menu
Our Christmas package starts with warming mulled wine, followed by a 3 course meal and Christmas decorations to get your guests in the spirit. If you wish to tailor some parts of your event for example, upgrading to Champagne instead of mulled wine (or even choosing a festive cocktail), please do get in touch to discuss any ideas.
Menu options include more options such as Sweet Potato Cranberry and Feta Wellington served with Tomato Fondue and Breast of Duck, Fondant Potato and Mulled Spiced Red Cabbage or more traditional classics such as Roast Local Turkey with Smoked Bacon wrapped Chipolata served with Sage and Onion Stuffing and White Chocolate and Stem Ginger Cheese Cake.
The College is decorated during the festive season, including a fabulous icy display at the Porters’ Lodge, garlands and fairy lights in Fountain Court Walkway and soaring 16ft Christmas trees in the Dome Dining Hall. The Fellows’ Drawing & Dining Rooms also have beautifully decorated trees. Tables are always set with crisp, white tablecloths, sparkling cutlery and table decorations. You are welcome to bring any decorations of your own and we can work with you to get them set out perfectly.
