Hild Bede will be providing both catered and self-catered accommodation options for 2023-24.
Hild Bede has some of the most characterful and exciting formal dining events in Durham. We hold around 7 a year and in addition, a 'freshers formal' for all our new students when they arrive. There are now three College Balls - in Winter, Spring and Summer as well as dining at our College day in the summer.
We typically dine around 250 at a formal (although we have known it to be more than 300) and have a High Table comprising the Principal and guests. For 2022-23 we expect to hold some formals in other College locations around Durham as well as a variety of other locations such as Beamish Hall.
For 2022-23 we are also planning to make full use of our Joachim Room - the former Chapel of St Hild's College - and stage smaller dining events of a more informal nature alongiosde operating our College bar.
