Formal meals are an important part of the student experience in Hatfield. They are held in Hall, twice a week for most of the Michaelmas and Epiphany Terms and thereafter once a week. Gowns and smart wear, Latin grace, the magnificent surroundings of Hall, occasionally black tie guest nights, candelebra, themed Formals - all add to the experience.
