Formal Hall

Formal Halls happen twice each week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) during term time.  The dress code is formal and, as a Selwyn member, you will be asked to wear a gown.

You receive a 3 course dinner for £10.50. There are two ways to book tickets for Formal Halls (up to three tickets per person):

  1. Through the MCR booking system where tickets go on sale on Thursday afternoon, two weeks before the dinner and go off sale on the Sunday midnight two weeks before the dinner. The sales are the same for Formals on Tuesday and Thursday,
  2. from Hall; tickets go on sale a week before the dinner. Tickets can be purchased at breakfast, lunch or dinner that day. Some popular formals sell out quickly so prepare to turn up at breakfast time to secure a ticket.

MCR Dinners

Once a month the MCR invites members and friends to come together for an MCR Dinner. Whilst Formal attire is always appropriate for these dinners some of them are themed and fancy dress is strongly encouraged. The dinner as such usually consists of a three-course meal, followed by coffee and port for a bargain price of £15. Tickets go on sale from Sunday afternoon two weeks before the dinner until Wednesday midnight one week before the dinner. Members can purchase up to 3 tickets each through the MCR booking system.

The evening starts at 19:00 with pre-drinks in the New SCR followed by dinner in Hall starting at 19:30. Afterwards, everyone goes to have a couple of drinks in the bar before heading off to the bop where you can enjoy amazing music with the best company you could ever imagine!
