Josephine Butler


Formal dinners are an integral part of the social calendar here at Josephine Butler and we have several a term, with themes ranging from murder mysteries and Harry Potter to Burns night and Valentine's day. They provide an opportunity for the whole of College to come together, and are fantastic evenings of wining, dining and entertainment, which can be fully formal (e.g. gowns, lounge suits and dresses) to fancy dress or black tie. Our formals are some of the most popular in the University, and with good reason, as you will come to see! For the full list of College formals, please see the main Collegiate Experience Programme Calendar which can be found here.

Attending Formals

JCR and MCR members can sign up for formals on the JCR website. SCR members wishing to dine on High Table should contact the College Secretary.
