Banquet in the Great Hall

A Taste of Christ Church

Friday 26 September 2014

Contemporary cuising and fine wines in the historic setting of Christ Church's Great Hall.
For nearly five hundred years the Hall has continued to fulfil its original function of providing a space in which the academic community can gather and share a meal. In addition to the daily rituals of breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Hall is used on special occasions for banquets and celebratory reunion dinners such as Gaudies. Since its creation in 1525 by Cardinal Wolsey the room has also been the setting for royal feasts, plays, debates and even Charles I’s parliament during the Civil War. It is a space steeped in history and yet full of life due to Christ Church’s ongoing purpose and sense of community.
