Induction Formal for new Ustinov students.
The College warmly invite you to join us for a formal dinner on 4th October (Mount Oswald Hub).
Details for the Formal:
Location: Mount Oswald Hub, Durham, DH1 3FP.
Dress Code: Ustinov is not a gowned college. Gatsby is the theme of this event - so please come dressed smartly, for example, lounge suits or cocktail dresses. A Gatsby-themed event embraces the feeling, sound, and aesthetic of the roaring 20s. The decade was all about gold gilding, decadence, and jazz.
The Oswald Hub will be open from 6:30 p.m. Speeches and the formal is scheduled to start at 6:45 pm so please ensure you arrive in good time (particularly to pick up your green (vegetarian), red (vegan) and red (allergy) cards if required). There is no seating plan for this event, you just need to pick up your dietary card and can sit anywhere to meet lots of new friends. The formal will end at approximately 9 pm after which Ustinov Bar will be open for us all to go to. Please note this is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) event, the Oswald Hub does not serve drinks so you will need to bring your own non-alcoholic/alcoholic beverage.
In addition to the above, please note that tickets are not refundable or exchangeable. We will need to see a valid email receipt from e-commerce on the door for entry.
Deadline for booking: Wednesday 27th September.
Induction Formal Menu:
Starter: Roasted tomato and red pepper soup with focaccia croutons and crumbled feta (v)
Main: Herb-crusted breast of chicken with spring onion croquet, pea purée, tender stem broccoli and tarragon jus OR
Spinach and ricotta tortellini, tomato ragu, sautéed spinach, garlic roast cauliflower and parmesan crisps (vegetarian)
