St Cuthbert's Society


Cuth's Week 2019

St Cuthbert's Society hosts a number of social events throughout the year, giving students an opportunity to take some time away from academic commitments.

SCR and Alumni Guest Night

1st December 2018, 19:00, Dining Hall, 12 South Bailey

Guest Nights are an excellent opportunity for SCR members and alumni to extend college hospitality to colleagues, visitors and friends. Members are equally welcome to sign up without bringing a guest, and can be assured of stimulating company. The event starts at 7pm with drinks and canapés in the JCR. We then move to the hall at 7:30pm for a three-course dinner with wine, followed by tea, coffee and port. The standard of food is especially high on these occasions.

Dress code: black tie (preferred) or lounge suit

Cost: £35, including pre-dinner drinks and port after the meal. Wine with the meal to be charged by the glass to college bills.

To book, please contact cuthberts.reception@durham.ac.uk, stating any dietary requirements. Please also give a brief note about any guests (e.g. "Head of astrobiology" or "Retired maths teacher, keen hiker") to help with the seating plan.
