Boarders enjoy their Peterhouse College Christmas Dinner

Boarders enjoy their Peterhouse College Christmas Dinner

The Boarders and Boarding staff enjoyed their annual, formal Christmas Dinner at Peterhouse, Cambridge University on Saturday 3 December. 

The evening began with (non-alcoholic) drinks and photos in the Combination Room, with a roaring fire, followed by a  sumptuous three course meal in the panelled, candle-lit dining room. The menu consisted of a whipped goat’s cheese entree followed by Beef Wellington or Carrot Wellington and a triple chocolate dessert. The boarders sat in their Year groups with Boarding staff at the head of each long and elegantly dressed table.  

Following the dinner, the boarders enjoyed a disco in the Senior School. A special thank you must go to the Boarding Prefects who organized the Hall decorations as well as the music for the disco. 

A long-standing tradition, which is a much anticipated occasion in the boarders' calendars, Christmas Dinner, Peterhouse style, is already booked in the diary for this time next year.
