Formal Halls at Darwin
On most Wednesdays and Fridays a formal dinner is served.
Bookings are made through Upay, available in an app or desktop version. Please follow the instructions in the information book to register. Alumni should contact the Development Office who may make bookings on your behalf.
In addition to yourself, you are permitted to book places for up to three guests using the online booking system (except on especially busy evenings such as Burns Night or the Christmas Formal Halls, when only one guest is permitted); however if you wish to bring additional guests, owing to family or special guests visiting, please apply to the Catering Manager at email@example.com for permission. Guests must be 16 years of age or above.
Full names of all guests must be completed in the online booking system. Any dietary requirements must also be added to your online booking – the Kitchens work from this list and it is the member’s responsibility to ensure the booking has been made correctly. Please note that you cannot bring your own wine to Formal Halls. Wine must be purchased through the Upay account at the time of booking.
Formal Halls usually take place in the Dining Hall for a maximum of 140 guests. Check-in will be held from 7.00pm with dinner at 7.30pm. The dinner will be announced by the sound of the College gong and diners will following the senior member present to the dining area. Diners must remain standing by their seat until the College Grace as been said. Diners may then be seated.
You may cancel or amend your booking any time through Upay’s ‘Active Bookings’ link up to 2.00pm on the day before your meal is booked in for. After that time your payment will not normally be refunded.
