“The charity was looking for a Cambridge venue which could offer a suitable space for a celebration, preferably with the option of a garden in case the weather was fine. Parking was also a priority as many guests traveled from all over the region to attend. We also needed a high standard of catering as the event was a ‘thank you’ to loyal supporters, funded entirely by sponsors.
“Murray Edwards College has a very peaceful atmosphere despite being so close to the city and there were some wonderful comments from guests who said that they had felt very well looked after on the day.”
Garden events are perfect for many occasions, from personal celebrations, to corporate garden parties, to outdoor networking receptions, to team building days.
Whatever the reason, Murray Edwards College has beautiful gardens and lawns that are perfect to enjoy that summer sunshine. Of course, should the weather be inclement, we will provide a “wet-weather back-up” room so that your event can still go ahead as planned.
The College gardens are informal and we are happy to consider any entertainment, games and music you can think of. Please talk to us about your plans in advance as we require risk assessments for activities and we may need to make additional internal arrangements.
Various menus are available including canapès, barbeques, finger buffets and afternoon tea and of course, don’t forget our selection of wine and reception drinks.
Gazebos may be erected in either the Fellows or Orchard Court garden. Marquees may be erected in Orchard Court, depending on numbers. We look forward to hearing your exciting plans.
We hope you find all the information you need within the Al Fresco Events pack, however if you have any further questions or to discuss any ideas, please get in touch.
