Welcome to Trinity Hall Events

Welcome to Trinity Hall Events

Trinity Hall dates back to 1350 and, as one of the oldest and most beautiful of the Cambridge Colleges, we offer an outstanding venue for conferences, dinners and special events.

Located in the heart of Cambridge, Trinity Hall’s stunning historic architecture and riverside grounds, matched with exceptional catering and conference and events facilities.  Our beautiful riverside grounds offer a spectacular setting for quintessentially Cambridge events.

COVID-19 update – we’re pleased to announce that Trinity Hall has received two national COVID Secure Awards in recognition of our health and hygiene standards and operational excellence.  For the time being, we’ve put a hold on external conferences and events while we focus on the well-being of our students, staff and College community.  If you have a conference or event enquiry for 2021 or 2022 then please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We can’t wait to welcome you back to Trinity Hall as and when it’s the right time to do so in line with the latest government guidelines.

‘Formal Hall at Home’ – a taste of normality at Trinity Hall

Although we’re currently closed for external events, our kitchen team were delighted to be able to offer our students a taste of normality with ‘Formal Hall at Home’, our lockdown-friendly takeaway formal dinner. We didn’t want our students to miss this significant collegiate dining experience which dates back hundreds of years. 

A great deal of planning and preparation went into this new dining experience, as Derek Shannon, Head Chef at Trinity Hall, explained: “‘Formal Hall at Home’ posed a number of challenges for the kitchen team. Our menus always aim to include the best seasonal produce with a focus on the provenance and sustainability of ingredients. In addition to this, we wanted to create an affordable 3-course menu which could easily and safely be re-heated at home. We also had to think carefully about the most suitable sustainable packaging, how well the food would travel and how easy it would be for the students to plate up at home. I’d like to thank our kitchen team for all their hard work behind-the-scenes in helping to make the evening such a success. While we wait for our students to be able to return to eat in the Dining Hall, we’re delighted to offer them this lockdown-friendly alternative in the meantime.”
