…many thanks for all your help in organising our meeting yesterday. You made it all so easy for us and Liam was fantastic in helping get all the tech side set up.

It was wonderful to be able to bring people together after so long and everyone really enjoyed the day. We have had lots of compliments about the College, the facilities and the catering – which were all just perfect – and, of course, the staff. We were so well looked after, so thank you all in making the day such a success.

“with a venue that catered for everyone’s travel, accommodation and parking needs and Murray Edwards was able to tick all these boxes”.


Louise Segar helped with the organisation pre-event and then on the night, Agnieszka who was on hand to help and kept a close eye on everything, checking I was happy. Louise was so professional with the set-up. She answered all my questions promptly and help me to organise the bar tab and directions at the last minute.” Tracey Swift

“{…} I also thought the catering was excellent. I have a food allergy and don’t usually like salads but that is what the chef made because of my cow’s milk and soya allergy and it was amazing! I didn’t feel as though I was missing out.” Kimberly Cole

All of us who attended the lunch on Wednesday would like to thank you very much for a really enjoyable occasion to mark the fiftieth anniversary of our coming up to read English at Trinity and some significant supervisions at New Hall, which made the lunch at Murray Edwards particularly appropriate. All the arrangements we had made from the outset with Louise worked very well, and of course the food and the rooms were lovely. People seem keen to do the same again next year perhaps!

We had a great day for the Cairns Ophtalmology Research Prize. Thank you for your help. We all absolutely loved the art tour, something that we would definitely repeat if we come back to Murray Edwards for future meetings, which is highly likely.

A huge thank you to all involved: the food was delicious, the service friendly and impeccably timed, and the venue itself perfectly set out as we had agreed in advance. Even the last minute changes we requested were carried out efficiently and with a smile!
It was wonderful to be able to show the College off in this way, and many of the delegates commented on how professional everything was, from the food to the gardens!

I take this opportunity also to thank the team for supporting the COSMIC Strategy Day so well – it was an excellent day and I received so many compliments about the organisation… .which of course was all down to Louise and her team! We will definitely be booking again in the future – it was very popular.

Many thanks for the hospitality of your team for our OSC Away Day. We had a productive day, and very much enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, especially whilst having lunch in the garden.

Beautiful hall to have reception in and the party venue was spectacular! By far the best venue yet!

Christmas Party Guest



I really liked the atmosphere and the look of the venue. It felt ideal for the type of event. The facilities were good and it was overall very comfortable. It was just the right size for the number of people in attendance. I liked that it was all in one room and the tables didn’t have to be moved to make way for the dancing.

Thank you so much for all your help and support for our conference last week – we had a really great time, and your venue added a real smart edge to the whole affair. We have had many compliments for the food in particular!

Thank you for your help with our booking on 13 August. I received very good reports from everyone about the evening particularly from our Chief Nurse whose leaving dinner it was and also our CEO who was very impressed with the food, service and setting. I’m so pleased it went well, it’s always a worry when you organise these events but aren’t there to see the outcome.

Murray Edwards College is a welcoming and contemporary setting – in many ways perfect for introducing the social and developmental characteristics of ‘pre-university’ living. It means that we can interact, engage and participate in activities that in other settings may be more restrictive. This gives us the flexibility to allow our students to be both youthful in their actions while also recognising the need to be adult in their surroundings.

Over the years the team at Murray Edwards has played a major part in helping us to run our program successfully and enabled us to give thousands of high school students the skills they will need for the next stage in their lives.

This is a wonderful venue for a meeting with excellent service and food. Everything is well organised and delegates will be very happy.

“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.”

Many thanks indeed to you and the Events team from all of us at Cambridge Samaritans for making our evening such a good event for us. It all went very smoothly and we are tremendously appreciative of all the efforts made by Murray Edwards staff – yourselves in helping us get the organisation right, the catering staff for the delicious food and looking after us so well, the AV support and the porters who were extremely helpful with our requests and comings and goings. Thank you too for a bit of patience and flexibility when our timings went a little late!
